Includes a fun differentiated popcorn maths project that requires grade 4, 5 and 6 students to use higher order thinking skills. It's a great project for popcorn month!
It serves as more than a thematic activity and requires students to use maths skills to prepare and make popcorn (if you wish).
Students work individually or in groups on differentiated maths black line masters. There are two versions plus some challenge questions. NOTE: This can be done for fun and without making popcorn if the last black line master and the challenge questions black line master are discarded.
Black line masters include:
*Planning the menu - gathering data and tallying
*Kids Popcorn Menu (colour and black and white options)
*Altering the recipe - operations and measurement
*Popcorn recipe (microwave and stove top options)
*Creating a shopping list - operations and measurement
*Making the Popcorn - mass and volume
If you decide to make popcorn then you will need to supply ingredients when needed (popcorn kernels, oil, butter, sugar, salt and anything else you wish to use for toppings).
There are links to American, English and Australian curriculum documents.
