Well, living in New England certainly is exciting these days...especially if you are a fifth grader cheering on the Red Sox in the World Series!
Me? I'm more of a football girl (Go Pats!) but I did want to do something small to capitalize on all that World Series mania going on with my students. And it really worked out perfectly because we are currently studying decimals (comparing and rounding decimals, 5.NBT.3 and 5.NBT.4, to be exact!)
So I made a little activity that we are going to use in math tomorrow along with the stats for the Cardinals and Red Sox on this page:

This activity features three pages of questions asking students to compare decimal averages of various players, as well as rounding these averages to the tenths and hundredths. I really hope that it will be of help if you happen to be studying decimals as well!
