Look at how much fun students had creating their fuzzy creatures. Then, check out the math they were required to do first. It was no easy feat.  They LOVE learning. :)

(4th-6th Grades)The kids LOVED this! Before they could create their fuzzy creature, they had to do the math to divide the supplies evenly among the teachers and then again among the five groups of students. They also had to estimate the cost for the teachers and determine the fractional pieces of their creature. For the first time, I had a student that never saw the point of division asking me how. He WANTED to divide. :-)
