PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

(4th-6th Grades)
The kids LOVED this! Before they could create their fuzzy creature, they had to do the math to divide the supplies evenly among five teachers and then again among the five groups of students. They also had to estimate the cost for the teachers and determine the fractional pieces of their creature. For the first time, I had a student that never saw the point of division asking me how. He WANTED to divide. :-)

The supplies for students to make the project is about $5.00 a class. I bought the kit at Wal-Mart in 2/2012.

Math Performance Event:

The Ultimate Fuzzy Kit contains 300 pieces. Five teachers bought three kits to share evenly. How many pieces will each teacher get?

Each kit costs $4.77. About how much money did each teacher spend?

There are 60 fuzzy sticks, 25 glitter poms, 25 glitter sticks, 10 wild animal fuzzy sticks, 50 wiggly eyes, and 130 poms in each package.
Five teachers want to share the total number of supplies evenly. How many of each item will they get?

Now, each teacher has to divide her supplies evenly among her groups of students to create the critters. Each teacher divides her students into five groups.

How many fuzzy sticks, glitter poms, glitter sticks, wild animal fuzzy sticks, wiggly eyes, and poms will each group get?

What fraction of the creature is fuzzy sticks?

What fraction of the creature is glitter poms?

What fraction of the creature is glitter sticks?

What fraction of the creature is wild animal fuzzy sticks?

What fraction of the creature is wiggly eyes?

What fraction of the creature is non-glitter poms?

This looks fun! I am using Class Dojo and think I will use this as a whole class reward when they all get a certain number of points. They can make their own monster and practice some math at the same time!
