This lesson integrates math, science, critical thinking, and humor!
Children are asked to feed their pet shark, caterpillar, and chicken using a menu and a limited budget. They must carefully consider how to spend their money (wisely) so they can accommodate varied appetites.
This activity is a student favorite! To quote a student " This is the most fun I've had doing math, EVER!"
Additionally, students are asked to apply the concept of living within a budget to their own lives. And, they can choose a meal for themselves using the Animal Cafe Menu BUT with no budgetary restrictions.
