WELCOME GOLFERS to the WACKY WORLD GOLF COURSE, also known as the WWGC.
Golfers move around the classroom to each of the 9 holes on the golf course. At each hole, golfers pick a math game card. Each game card contains a math word problem (one-step and multi-step) related to the golf course. The word problems align with the fourth-grade math Common Core State Standards. (See the list of the standards on the thumbnail.) There are 72 game cards included so your students (golfers) may play many rounds of golf.
The golfers determine their score by rolling a die. Golfers may also have to add or subtract additional points to their score depending on the game card they pick from the bag. Listed on some game cards are stroke penalties (hazards or distractions) and bonus strokes. A stoke penalty adds points to the golfer’s score, and bonus strokes allow golfers to subtract points from their score.
The features of the WWGC include tropical waterfalls, caves, dinosaurs, bears, gators, aliens, pirates, in addition to many other crazy happenings.
Each hole has a theme:
- Hot Diggity Dog
- Dino Mountain
- Holiday Madness
- Pirate’s Cove
- Bear Creek Canyon
- Out of This World
- Animal Haven
- Aloha Falls Garden
- The Unsinkable Hole
