I stumbled on a great resource the other day and wanted to share it with you all. Michele over at www.coffeecupsandlessonplans.com has wonderful, high-level lesson plans for Math, as well as a whole category dedicated to the teaching of Reading and Writing. And get this: a whole category dedicated to freebies!
I am transfixed by this lesson on surface area using cereal boxes and (specifically) toblerone boxes. Ahem. Why, yes I did say "Toblerone boxes"!
I totally know what you are thinking and so I'll just put the rumors to rest right now.
There is absolutely no connection to me thinking this is a great lesson and the fact that chocolate is involved. Because, well, technically, there is not chocolate involved in the lesson. Only chocolate boxes. It really is a pity that the chocolate boxes need to be emptied before children are able to participate in this activity. It's a hard job, but that someone might as well be me! Being a teacher is hard work, but I do admit it has it's perks. :o)
Head over to Michele's site and check out her teaching expertise and wonderful ideas.
