Wednesdays are for living outside the box. And so, they are usually our favorite days!
Then we continued our theme of fractions (starting with baking pumpkin bread on Monday) in this three act task! We wanted to know how many orange wedges are in the bowl?
In order to figure it out, we needed to know the following:
How big is each orange wedge in relation to the whole orange?
How many whole oranges were used?
And our wishes were granted...
And finally the reveal! Essentially we needed to figure out the number of oranges times the number of wedges. We approached the problem a couple different ways...
and some of us drew detailed pictures
And for the most "out of the box" question of the day, Miss Kylie asked us if we could fit our bodies through an index card. We were only given an index card, scissors, and one piece of tape. We were skeptical at first, but we made it work. For a challenge, she took away the tape. Minds blown!
