In this packet students will work on rounding, multiplication, input/output tables, and shapes to invent a new toy.  There is a note asking parents to bring in supplies to actually make their toys. (foam, felt, stuffing, needles, thread, wood, popsicle sticks, wood glue, clay)

Driving Question: How can we create a new toy for Christmas that people would want to mass produce.

Activity 1: Brainstorm how we might answer our driving question.

Activity 2: Students will look at ads to find toys, see how much they are charging, and round to the nearest dollar.  You will need store ads or online ads. (Rounding)

Activity 3:  Multiply how much it would cost if you bought multiples of the items you chose. (Multiplication-Could be 2 digit x 1 digit)

Activity 4: If Santa were making multiples of his toys how many would he need of certain parts? Students could Google to see the actual toys on-line. ;) (Input/Output Tables)

Activity 5:  Students will create a new toy on the brainstorming sheet.  They will label their shapes on their diagrams and will then have to write about why those shapes are good in that toy.

Activity 6: Students will build their toy and reflect.

Understand that shapes in different categories (e.g., rhombuses, rectangles, and others) may share attributes (e.g., having four sides), and that the shared attributes can define a larger category (e.g., quadrilaterals). Recognize rhombuses, rectangles, and squares as examples of quadrilaterals, and draw examples of quadrilaterals that do not belong to any of these subcategories.
Use place value understanding to round whole numbers to the nearest 10 or 100.
