Do you love incorporating literature-based math in your classroom? The "Pigs Will Be Pigs" series is such a fun option! These books show students how math is used in real life, and with these extension lessons and games, kids will continue learning after reading the stories by Amy Axelrod.
This bundle includes resources to go along with the following books:
*Pigs Will Be Pigs: Fun With Math and Money
*Pigs in the Pantry: Fun With Math and Cooking
*Pigs on a Blanket (Fun with Time and Elapsed Time)
The extension activities for "Pigs Will Be Pigs" and "Pigs in the Pantry" cover adding and subtracting money, as well as conversions and doubling a recipe (and working with fractions in the kitchen).
The resource for "Pigs on a Blanket" includes a set of elapsed time task cards with problems based on the story.
All of these lessons and math challenges include teaching tips, ideas for classroom use and answer keys for your convenience.
This download is in a .zip file, which includes 3 separate pdf files so you can easily find the resources for each particular book. Please be sure you know how to open a zip file on your computer prior to purchasing.
Please also note that these activities are intended to be used with the books. So you will need to either purchase a copy of the books or find them at your local library (I have found them to be fairly easy to find at my local libraries).
