Sarah Moore Greene Magnet Academy celebrates math at Matharnival

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- On Tuesday, March 27, from 4 to 6 p.m., Local 8 News helped celebrate as Sarah Moore Greene Magnet Academy held its first ever Matharnival, a carnival to help kids get excited about math!

The school's goal was to provide a fun evening with students and their families, while providing math-related games to take home and continue the fun!

Organizers grilled hot dogs in the school's courtyard, and students were allowed to collect grade level game instructions, a deck of cards and dice so they could play games at home with their families.

Afterwards, students and families visited the gym and cafeteria for carnival games, where they found fun activities and earned prizes.

Each student went home with a math-related picture book.
