Incorporating Measurement and Data into Fun Physical Activity at School, at Afterschool, at Home

Brain Boost: Estimation, Measurement, Distance, Number Line, Communication, and Accountability


Students learn visually, auditorily, and kinesthetically. Today’s featured game helps kids learn math through movement. Play this game in big and small spaces, at home with your family, or with a big group of students (socially distanced of course!).


Check out the brain boost below to see how the activity boosts math skills in the classroom.


PowerUp Fitness offers a variety of unique fitness programs just for kids!  PowerUp programs are designed to provide children with the opportunity to become more active, physically and mentally.

Guess the Steps

Everyone estimates how many heel-to-toe steps they will need to take to cross the room. After participants cross, see who is nearest to their own estimate. Try other exercises like long jumps, hip-hops, lunges, etc.


After each measurement is completed, have students:

  • Find the difference between their estimation versus their actual measurement

  • Visualize the number line and estimate how far off they were from 0 (did they overestimate, underestimate)

At home or virtual adaptation: Instead of long distances, have students estimate the number of jumping jacks they can do in a certain amount of time i.e 30 seconds.


Number line, over/underestimating, estimated vs actual brain boosts can all still be applied.
