Learning landscape combines learning with fun and physical activity

Kayla Koether (far left) taught Mrs. Hass' (far right) second grade class how to play a math game on the learning landscape.

Students solved addition and subtraction equations, then found the tire that correlated with the number that was the answer to the equation.

The students were split into two teams. The team member who found the correctly numbered tire first got to claim that tire.

Once all 25 tires were filled, the team with the most members occupying the tires was the winner.

The class played two rounds of the math game—one with mixed gender groups and another with boys vs. girls. (The boys won.)

Teachers will also be able to access special learning landscape lessons that will fit into their subject matter.

“Instead of staying inside for class, we can go outside and play games to learn the things we need to know,” Kayla Koether explained to Mrs. Hass’ second grade class. “The games we learn might be so much fun that you’ll want to play them at recess.”

Danky's has already piqued the interest of 16-year-old Jared Krueger (above), of McGregor, who admitted that he wasn’t that interested in skating before Danky’s came on the scene.

Danky’s offers skateboard decks, accessories, hats, shoes and apparel, as well as skateboard customizing and repair services.

The store also offers the local skating community something intangible—support.
