Every month Macdonough fifth graders get together with fifth graders from Jack Jackter Intermediate School in Colchester for a math program called Equal This.
Equal This is a program that allows students to engage with students of their own age and form positive friendships while partaking in various math activities. Students correspond monthly through friendly letters and visits. Macdonough students are grouped with students from Jack Jackter School. They compete against each other in a higher level thinking Equations game.
This month Jack Jackter had the opportunity to visit Macdonough. They were greeted by the fifth grade students and received a tour of the school. During their visit students worked together to create geometric masks that represented their unique individuality. Students shared the masks and were able to make connections with each other.
