Product Description
CRITICAL THINKING MATH CHALLENGE: How Many Ways? -- February Edition

Are you looking for a critical thinking activity to challenge your students' math abilities? Do you need enrichment experiences for your high achieving children? Are you looking for ways to engage fast finishers? Have you lost your enthusiasm for bulletin boards? If you answered "yes" to any or all of these questions, then How Many Ways? -- February Edition is just what you need.

This is a fun, open ended, critical thinking, math challenge that covers a bulletin board for a month or more. How Many Ways? -- February Edition works well as an anchor activity, a math center, a sponge activity, or a challenge for fast finishers. Similar to Boggle, the challenge in this activity is to arrive at a target number in many different ways. It readily provides differentiation by allowing the teacher to choose between 2 questions: one asks students to count to the target number; one requires students to use math operations to arrive at the target. It may be easily adapted to any elementary grade level and provides differentiation within a single grade.

Reproduce the heart icons and place them on a bulletin board along with the How Many Ways? question of your choice. These icons come in color and black line; with and without counting dots. Choose the math operation(s) appropriate for your students and post them, as well. Then invite your students to determine how many ways they can reach the target number. Students may use each icon only once, however, they need not use every icon. Add an extra challenge by requiring that the numbers used must touch each other.

This activity is CCSS aligned.
