If you're looking for a quick and easy way to have a little Thanksgiving fun while teaching important math skills, you'll want to check this out! I've created five math lessons that require no prep work other than making copies or printing, and are fun for students!
In this product you'll find:
-Geometric Feast-Students have to set a Thanksgiving table using different shaped platters and serving dishes. This addresses almost all basic polygons mentioned in the Common Core Standards.
-Partitioning Pies-Students will partition six different pies into different numbers of pieces. To give students a little extra enrichment, I've added a Part 2 to the activity, and students will solve fraction word problems using the partitioned pies.
-Cost of Cooking-Students will use an information sheet of nine different food items to solve 12 problems that will require students to use multiple operations to solve one-step and two-step problems.
-Cook Off-Students will use Thanksgiving recipes to solve six elapsed time problems.
-Party Planning-Students are preparing for their family's Thanksgiving meal, and the preparation leads to five division problems that require students to think about how the remainder effects the problem.
