Dr. Division Day Brings Fun, Medical Theme to Classroom Learning for Ledgemont 3rd Graders

Ledgemont Dr. Division Day

On Wednesday, February 6, 2019, third-graders at Ledgemont Elementary participated in Dr. Division Day, an all-day learning activity featuring math and language arts concepts involving division, but with a fun, medical-themed twist.  Both 3rd grade classrooms were transformed into “exam rooms” with donated hospital-themed decorations, including a plastic sheet over the doorway and blue exam table sheets covering the student’s desks.  Teachers wore medical scrubs and white lab coats, while students wore donated surgical gowns and masks to complete their doctor outfits.  Math activities included “Doctor’s Office Division” where students completed division word problems involving a different patient story.  Students learned about contractions with a variety of learning stations including “Surgery Station”, which required them to cut words apart and tape them back together with band-aids to form contractions.  Altogether, the students and their teachers had a blast being a “doctor” for the day while learning.
