This is a great hands-on activity to reinforce graphing and identifying solid figures (three-dimensional shapes) with some sweet treats.
A few food suggestions for each solid figure…
Sphere- Cheese Balls, Whoppers, Trix or Kix cereal
Cube- Gum Pieces, Caramel Squares, Cheese Squares
Rectangular Prism- Kit Kats, Starburst, Milky Way Minis
Cone- Chocolate Chips, Combos, Tootsie Rolls
Cylinder- Marshmallows, Bugles
Provide your students with a baggie of munchies and they will sort, graph, tally, solve equations, write a question about their data and answer their question.
Happy Teaching! ~Diary of a First Grade Teacher
