While we were making S’mores I thought about how many marshmallows we might be able to fit in our mouth so I called in my oldest after my youngest almost choked on 5. Here is the result:) I’m sure he would want you to know that “he could’ve fit in more” but I stopped him for you know…math purposes!
I think this is an excellent fit for CCSS and MLS K.NBT.A.1.
How many marshmallows can he fit in his mouth? (Don’t try this at home)
What number would be too low? Too high? Just right?
My son and I have started roasting marshmallows over our fire table and decided this could be a fun winter task!
This task could be used for many different scenarios, but I am choosing to use it for 2nd grade CCSS 2.OA.A.1 (and a little 2.OA.C.4) and MLS 2.NBT.C.11 (2.RA.B.3). Could also work for 1.OA.A.1 and 1.RA.A.1.
