Celebrate St. Patrick's Day with these 8 math investigations. Each begins with a question to focus the investigation and then invites young learners to use simple Guess and Check boxes to make and test predictions and record outcomes. On each record sheet, children meet a math mascot (Lucky Leprechaun) who asks "Math Talk" questions to help them reflect and discuss the outcomes of the investigation.
Investigation Questions Include:
How much money is in your pot of gold?
Can you share your pot of gold evenly?
How heavy is Lucky's pot of gold?
How many pennies will it take to sink an empty pot of gold?
How many pennies will it take to get Lucky to his pot of gold?
How many pennies are hiding in Lucky's pot of gold?
How many drops of water will a penny hold?
Is heads or tails more likely to come up in a coin toss?
