I am a huge, huge fan of teaching math through problem solving. We spend a lot of time problem solving. I will be using my apple C.G.I. math problems for problems of the day and for small group math exchanges for the next two weeks. I love that there are no numbers in them so you can differentiate the problems to meet the needs of your students.
I also have a sort for helping students think about the meaning of the equal sign.
If you are looking for a simple art project, try tissue paper and starch apples. Dilute liquid starch (look in the laundry aisle of your grocery store) with water - about 50/50. Copy an apple pattern onto white construction paper. Paint the liquid starch onto the back of your paper. Make sure to do the back so that when it dries you can cut out from the side that has the copy of the apple. Layer on overlapping pieces of tissue paper that are cut into 2-3 inch squares. Paint another coat of liquid starch over it and let it dry.
And here's a yummy freebie...my favorite apple dip.
Here's a chance for you to win all of my apple themed math products. Just enter the raffle and the winner will be announced on Wednesday.
Thanks for stopping by. Hop on over to the next stop for some more apple themed fun.
