math class in Kenya!
Nine-year-old Alex is learning math by counting fruits that grow on trees in his village. Without the help of Alex’s sponsor, his mom would not be able to afford pencils, rulers or other supplies that help him learn math.
Alex learns to tell time, understand money and solve problems with math skills! When he grows up, Alex will use math to figure out how much money he needs to earn at a job so he can afford a home, food, clothes and other important things.
Complete this challenge to move on to your Compassion center! Look at the number patterns on your printed Challenge Sheet. Then fill in the blanks with the number missing from each pattern.
Ask your parents how much money they spent on your school supplies this year. Then ask them how hard it would be to send you to school if they earned less than $2 a day, like many sponsored children’s families do.
