Cookie Math: Addition and Subtraction is a hands-on independent, partner, or center activity that reinforces concepts of addition and subtraction. The activity is fully differentiated for students who are just learning single-digit addition facts to students who are ready for double-digit subtraction.
Printable cookie images are provided, although in my lessons I use painted wooden discs.
In Cookie Math, students choose two cookies (chocolate chip for lower numbers, sprinkles for more complex number sentences) and write an addition or subtraction sentence. They then "prove" their answer by drawing a picture of their number sentence and solution.
The activity includes an enrichment page on the back (shown in thumbnails) and three story problems for early finishers.
