Bowling is a great way to get kids out of the house to do something active, but did you know it can be a good way to practice math as well? Try to let your kids score their bowling game the old fashioned way and then check their math on the screen. Directions and a worksheet can be found here: http://www.educationworld.com/a_lesson/02/lp266-04.shtml. You can try this out at a local bowling alley. Liberty Lanes has a $2 bowling special over the summer for kids and parents if you sign up with an email: http://www.libertycenterva.com/summerstrikes.html. You can also bowl for $2 on Thursdays without signing up. Need to stick around the house? You can also give this a try at home if you have a kids bowling set or some empty soda bottles and a ball.
