Mouthful of Math
We have been busy learning about teeth and integrating it with math. A wonderful dental hygienist brought Alli Alligator to help her tell students about dental care. Our first grade classes made a line plot with the number of teeth lost. We used the line plot to make an interactive bulletin board.
Students also did a cute and fun activity using marshmallows. Before gluing the marshmallows on their self-portraits, the students answered some story problems. The story problems featured a few of their classmates. Finally, the students completed story problems and number sentences to go with their self-portraits. I think we'll finish up with a healthy snack.
Here is the worksheet that students completed before creating the self-portraits. I used my students' names. Feel free to change the names.
