This is fun math and science activity where students can practice or review concepts like: geometric shapes and vocabulary, measuring and volume or regular and irregularly shaped figures. This is a print and go activity with minimal planning for the gahering of materials.
-Suggestions for decorations
-2 posters size 8.5 x 11
- 1 poster size 8.5 x 11 with directions
-Activity Handouts: differentiated for approaching and proficient students
- Color version and black and white
-Print posters and place on a table with the materials for the activity, pages 3-4.
-Print activity handouts pages 6-7 one per student -create a snack size Ziploc bag for each student containing:
1-2 Hershey's kisses
1 Hershey's nugget
(optional) any other gold covered chocolate of your choice.
-Decorate each snack size bags with the labels provided on page 11.
- Graduated cylinders for measuring the volume of the Hershey’s kiss. I don’t tell the kids how to do it because I want to see if they remember how to do this. But you can go ahead and make the directions available with option 2 handout page 10.
-Distribute the snack bags and the student activities handout and allow about 35-45 minutes for the students to carry out the activity. Then discuss their shared responses for 10 minutes.
