Product Description
Try these Valentine's Day-themed, engaging, and cooperative mini-math activities with your students, and I guarantee they will have fun learning math.

1. MINUTE TO WIN IT STRAW SUCKING AND CHOPSTICKS CHALLENGES
2. FRACTION FRENZY
3. MEASUREMENT MADNESS
4. TART TOWERS
5. GREAT GRAPHING
6. STUNNING STATISTICS
7. EXCELLENT ESTIMATIONS
8. 7 CHEWABLE CHALLENGES for Early Finishers! They love these!

It is a huge hit with my 6th graders each year. It is editable in Word (and edible:) so activities can be adapted to suit multiple grade levels. I buy 4 bags of conversations hearts for my team of 48 students. Also, I buy a drinking straw for each student, and I use about 40 bathroom-sized cups. I give each group of 2-4 students a heaping cup of candy hearts, and they use the rest of the cups for the chopstick and straw “Minute to Win It” activities. Get a pair of chopsticks for each group at your favorite Asian restaurant or grocery store.

MATH SKILLS USED: estimation, fractions, decimals, percents, mean, median, mode, range, ratios, graphing, etc.

Allow 1 hour for this activity.

I added a RIVETING RATIOS part if your students have covered that skill. They find ratios using their cup of hearts, and then answer word problems such as:

3) You have 15 yellow candy hearts. The ratio of yellow candy hearts to purple is 5:2.
a) How many purple candy hearts do you have?

b) How many yellow candy hearts would you have to eat to make the ratio of yellow to purple hearts
a 1:1 ratio?
