February is a great month for projects. During this time, I like to play around with conversation hearts in Math and Science. Even if you don’t like to eat them, they are still pretty cool to do activities with, plus I love the colors! They bring a bit of brightness to a dreary winter month!
In this packet you will find 16 Math Activities and 4 Science Experiments
MATH- estimation, capacity, examining, sorting, data, length, probability, perimeter, plane shapes, polygons, area, modeling, computation (addition, subtraction, multiplying and dividing), arrays, fractions and math vocabulary definitions with a fill in the blank worksheet for math definitions.
SCIENCE- Candy Heart POP!- watching hearts dance around in Sprite
Fizzie Hearts- what type of reactions will happen if candy hearts are placed in different liquids
Ghost Hearts- a comparison between hearts left in sunlight and hearts left in total darkness
Melting Heart Races- in which liquid do candy hearts dissolve the quickest in?
All activities come with an observation or recording sheet. This is a fun, enrichment unit that can be used in so many different ways. The activities are for all levels from basic to challenging but fun for all! The Math activities are to introduce new concepts, to refresh previous taught concepts and to use Math vocabulary students in all grades should be familiar with.
All activities should be done with the MINI- conversation hearts, not the large ones.
