Students will discover the "why" and "how" behind square roots in this fun, hands-on, cooperative learning activity.
Students will be given a baggie of Cheez-Its (or other manipulative) and the chart in this file. Students will model a square given the number of Cheez-Its on one side. They will fill in their chart for the total number of Cheez-Its in each square. Students will then complete a double-sided number line to represent squares and square roots and five accompanying questions.
Students LOVE this activity!
