I like to give my students a take-home project every so often. Right now they are working on decorating a plastic egg. They are then going to use their egg character to write math number stories. They are due on Monday - but a few have come in early and WOW are they turning out awesome!!!!
Here's a few pictures of some past projects (I have been doing this project with my students for a few years now):
Here is a sneak peak of this years projects:
I didn't get a picture yet - but some students have made Angry Bird Eggs and a Skunk. (I promise to add the new eggs this week when they all come in)
If you'd like to do this project with your class - please visit my Teacher's Notebook Store and grab a copy! I've included project direction sheets, Math Number Story recording forms, grading rubrics, student self-rating rubric, and writing extension forms!
