The workshop was developed for students who like to apply what they are learning to the real world and real life situations. Therefore this workshop takes capacity, a long with fraction, mixed numbers, improper fractions, addition, subtraction, division, elapsed time and temperature and brings them all together to make a measurement connection deliciously through the creation of a homemade cheesecake and a pitcher of lemonade.
My students wait for a weeks a time before they can take on this project in the classroom. They look forward to it because students who have worked on this rave about it. They are completely focused and engaged throughout the entire week.
Don't forget to follow me.
