So does anyone remember that Weird Al song Just Eat It? For some odd reason that song popped into my head as I was thinking about this post. I remember watching that music video as a wee lass and now I have a hauntingly funny memory of it. Anyway, moving on to the post. One of my favorite math concepts to teach my first graders is geometric shapes. Not only do we explore the standard flat shapes such as triangles and squares but we get to delve into the discovery of three dimensional, solid figures like the sphere and pyramid. I love sending the children on a shape scavenger hunt around school. This year I decided to do an edible math discovery so the kids could not only manipulate a geometric figure but just eat it too! The kids and I had a blast investigating, sorting, and recording data about the snacks. On the last day of school I surveyed my students and this lesson was the winner of THE BEST MATH LESSON EVER award. Try it with your kids, they won't be able to wait to Just Eat It.
