Skittle Math

Spring weather is coming...right?  Happy thoughts...happy thoughts...warm thoughts...

Yesterday we used Skittles to complete a Skittle math lesson!  First, we made arrays and demonstrated our understanding of repeating addition!  Next, we made shares of our Skittles.  We pretended to share the Skittles with 2, 3, and 4 friends.  We discussed what happens to the Skittles that cannot be equally shared.  We related this to our life experiences at home and at restaurant.  Finally, we graphed our results and analyzed our data!



Colorful Smiles,
