Celebrate Valentine's Day with these 8 math investigations. Each begins with a question to focus the investigation and then invites young learners to use simple Guess and Check boxes to make and test predictions and record outcomes. On each record sheet, children meet a math mascot (Love Bug) who asks "Math Talk" questions to help them reflect and discuss the outcomes of the investigation.
Investigation Questions include:
How many candy hearts are in your box?
Do you have an odd or even number of candy hearts?
Which color do you have the most of in your box?
How long is Love Bug's antenna?
How heavy is your box of candy hearts?
How many candy hearts fit around Love Bug's left wing?
How many candy hearts fit inside Love Bug's right wing?
How many candy hearts can you stack?
