FIFA World Cup 2018 Maths Activities - Symmetry, Data Handling, Problem-Solving

This resource consists of the following six mostly differentiated activities related to the World Cup:

  1. Problem-solving lesson with notebook and 3 differentiated sheets. Children design new football kit for their favourite national team consisting of tshirts, shorts (and socks) and find all possibilities of combining them when using 2 (3) colours.

  2. Bar chart lesson. Children use data from a Workd Cup table and put it into a bar chart. Differentiated. First bar chart in ones up to 6 and children enter amount of world cups won by different nations. Second bar chart in twos up to 6 and children enter amount of world cups won by different nations. Third bar chart in tens up to 230 where children enter amount of goals scored in world cups for several nations.
    All bar charts have at least 5 follow-up questions. First two probably more suited to KS1, last one to KS2.

  3. Symmetry activity. Children use pictures of flags of all participating teams which are included and sort them into symmetrical and not symmetrical. Included is another sheet on explaining our reasoning - choose two non-symmetrical flags - what would need to be changed so they are symmetrical, explain.

  4. Sorting Activity: Children use pictures of flags of all participating teams which are included and sort them using their own criteria into a Venn or Carroll diagram.

  5. A quick activity on comparing two flags - how are they the same and how are they different.

  6. One activity where children use information on who won the world cup when and put the countries in chronological order by year. One scaffolded sheet and one not scaffolded.

All activities attached as word and pdf files in case the word files don’t open properly.
