3 Act: More Muffins!

As I mentioned in my previous post, we have been working on our wellness unit in first grade and this week is on Healthy Eating!  We will be making muffins with our students and I thought this was the perfect time to use the muffin video footage I took over the summer that I was saving for just the right 3 Act Lesson!  I am excited to try it with our kiddos!  Here is a link to the Nearpod Version.

This lesson best fits 1.OA.B.4 for 1st grade and 2.OA.A.1 for 2nd grade.

Check out my previous post for repeated addition using exactly the same footage in a different scenario:)

Act 1

Q: Estimate how many more more muffins to fill up the pan.  Write a too high and a too low estimate.

Act 2

Q: What information do you know?  What information do you need?

I’ll post student responses and a reflection following our lesson.  Please feel free to leave any comments or suggestions for improvement!
