"How many feet do you meet if you are one of nine children sitting in a circle?" "How many feet do you meet if six cats come to greet you? (Do not include your own feet!)"
These are only two of eight critical thinking questions that get students talking and writing during math center or journal time. You will be surprised how creative and perplexing they are. They are not as simple as you think they might be!
Included are task cards, writing and story pages for students to express their thoughts.
