This is a simple classroom transformation to celebrate the 50th day of school 50s style. We dressed up and made some signs so this has a minimal cost to transform. Students danced, and solved math tasks to collect ingredients to make ice cream or they can make a root beer float at they end for an easier celebration. First you launch the lesson with the problem. Mel is out of ice cream (or Root Beer Floats) at Mel's Diner and students must help her by getting the ingredients to make the ice cream.
Station 1: Mel's supply shelf was knocked over and they had to fill the shelves, sorting out the items by their 3-Dimensional shapes.
Station 2: Students must help Mel fill the ice cream orders and total the checks by counting by 10s.
Station 3:Students must help seat customers. They have to count how many are in each party and put them at a table that matches the number.
Station 4: Mel dropped the tickets and students must put the tickets back in order.
Station 5: Students have to build cones for the ice cream at Mel's Diner. Once students finish the tasks, they are able to make the ice cream.
