5th Grade Classroom Size Grows with Math Project

 Story image 1_0

Fifth grade students did some problem solving the first four days of school.  They were challenged to  make a stuffed dummy. Time was spent deciding what they wanted to do.  Everyone brought supplies the next day.  More problem solving happened when they realized some of their first ideas wouldn't work.  The final products were amazing.  They did a great job.  Next they used their math skills to compare the stuffed dummy to themselves. When the project was done, eleven stuffed dummies joined the class for a couple of days.
