3 Act: Marshmallow Man

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.

Act 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?

Act 2

There were 15 marshmallows in the bowl.

This is how many were left.

Act 3
