I must admit that I do not really have much direct experience with elementary
level students. I am a middle school teacher, however, I had a few ideas that
might be helpful for you.

Geri Anderson-Nielsen's lessons called "Sketchpad for Little Ones" has some
great lessons! You can find it on the Web at:


Another idea is to teach students how to tessellate! I have had many
responses from elementary level teachers stating that their students loved
these activities. The complete site is here:


The Harcourt Brace site has some very fun java pages that are interactive. I
just worked one that was a matching activity with clocks and time! You can
find it at:

Then, of course, there is the wonderful Elementary Problem of the Week hosted
by the Math Forum which you can find at:


I hope some of those ideas are helpful.
