5th Grade Students use Marshmallows and Tootie Fruities to Review Math

 Story image 1_0

How can you use marshmallows to review math?  You build polyhedrons using miniature marshmallows and toothpicks. What about Tootie Fruities? Give each student a cup of Tootie Fruities and then ask them to write a fraction for each color, simplify the fraction, make the fraction into a decimal, and then finally change it into a percentage. What happens when you're done? Well, of course you eat them!
