For this activity, each student will get a jump rope and get into his/her personal space. The teacher will then call out various math problems appropriate to the grade level (including addition, subtraction, multiplication, etc). The students will call out the answer to the problem and then jump the rope the number of times that equals the answer (counting the jumps out loud). The teacher will vary the jumping skill by asking students to jump forward, backward, crossing the rope, jumping while moving or other skills that have been taught previously in the class.
