Product Description
This activity is to go along side the book “Spaghetti and Meatballs for All! A Mathematical Story” written by Marilyn Burns and Illustrated by Debbie Tilley.
This book was AWESOME at introducing the idea of AREA and PERIMETER to elementary students however I wanted to be able to use it for my middle school students as well. In 6th grade students no longer use the “square”/counting method for area and perimeter, instead they are introduced to formulas and begin writing equations to solve these types of problems.
Includes:
>PDF file with 11 pages dedicated to table and chair arrangement examples that go along with each 11 arrangements in the book.
>Full page of 8 table and 32 chairs that you can laminate and cut for your students to manipulate at their desks or you can simply have them sketch each table arrangement on a sheet of paper.
>Worksheet that students can follow along with book/PowerPoint and write EQUATIONS for each of the table arrangements Mrs. Comfort and her crazy family go through. Students will also answer higher order thinking questions involving the book and area/perimeter allowing them to think critically and collaborate with classmates.
I hope your students enjoy this activity and book as much as my students have. If they are anything like the kids I have had in the past they will be screaming at the Comfort family by the end of the book!
Enjoy!
