In this packet students will complete "technical training" and then will apply what they have learned to create their own hot cocoa bar! This is really easy to prepare! All you need to do is make copies of the packet and let students get to work. The only additional resources you might need is white construction paper and recyclables (if you choose that).
Through this project students will mutliply up to 3 digit by 2 digit numbers, they will analyze and make their own bar graphs with scaling, they will add and subtract to make budgets, and will do long division. (The division is minimal and students could easily use a calculator for that part if it is too hard for them.)
This project is great for high 3rd grade enrichment, 4th grade general classroom work, or 5th grade students who need some extra review!
If you want to have a hot cocoa bar in your classroom, I have also included a parent note asking for supplies.
