I am just obsessed with these tiny Tic Tac boxes and had to create a task so that I had an excuse to buy them! This task is well suited for several grade level standards ranging from 2nd grade to 4th.
The grade 2-3 option is in orange below and the 4th is in blue.
CCSS 2-3 Options: 2.NBT.B.6, 3.OA.A.3
CCSS 4 Options: 4.NBT.B.5 or 4.OA.A.3 (with write an equation)
Grades 2-3 Act 1
Grades 4-5 Act 1
What do you notice? What do you wonder?
Grades 2-3 question: How many little Tic Tac containers are in the big one?
Grades 4: How many Tic Tacs are there in all of the containers?
Write an estimate that is too low, one that is too high and one that is reasonable.

There are 15 of each flavor.
There are 4 flavors.

Write an equation with a letter standing for the unknown quantity and solve.

Yay! Let me know how it goes:)
Do you have any Grade 4 3-Act tasks that address decimals?
