Rodeo Time - MathStart 3 - Reading a Schedule
Is this book about a real woman in STEAM?
Katie and Cameron are all excited to help their uncle, Cactus Joe, with chores at the rodeo. Their first chore is watering the horses before the Bareback Bronc Riding event. "It starts at 3:00, so be there at 2:00 sharp," Joe tells them. "You'll need an hour to get the job done." Katie makes a schedule. The next day, the rodeo starts with a Parade and Grand Entry at 10:00 a.m., followed by lunch at noon, and then it's time to water the horses at 2:00 p.m. By lunchtime, Katie and Cameron are running late. Will the kids make it?
Reading a schedule involves time-telling skills, developing a sense of elapsed time, and an ability to anticipate and plan.
MathStart is an award-winning series by Stuart J. Murphy that teaches math through stories and visual models.
