Authentic Teaching – The License Plate Game


This is a new twist on an old travel game.  For years parents have entertained children on long car rides by having them look for and check off a license plate from all 50 states.  As many kids now have access to on line information through phones and tablets, you can add the task of looking up and naming the capital of the state, population, etc.  Authentic Math Bonus:  additional points for each plate can be added based on larger population, geographical location, etc.   The more you add, the busier the kids are, and the more reading they are doing.
