Do you love teaching your kids with completely out-of-the-box ideas? This is a fun idea: Use Hot Wheels for Math!
Hot Wheels in School offers lesson plans for both Kindergarten and Grade 1 that use the iconic car collection in combination with math concepts. There are two downloadable lesson plans for either the Kindergarten or Grade 1 level. Each booklet consists of 3 lessons – complete with objectives, lesson outline, material lists, and prep work needed, plus any printable worksheets you need.

They also have a downloadable activity book which has some games like matching cars, measuring challenges, and a maze. This booklet includes both a coupon for Hot Wheels cars and a colouring contest picture – but at this time, they are both expired offers.
From what I can see, the Hot Wheels in School team hopes to update their curriculum plans. You can sign up via email to keep up-to-date with all the details.
This is a fun, creative way to combine favourite toys with learning.
