Welcome Back!

September 6, 2016

Today we used beans to do some math.

We talked about counting, and representing.  We had all sorts of ideas about how to determine how many beans there were without counting each bean.

Some counted groups of beans

Some made rectangles out of beans and multiplied the rows by the columns

Some measured the length of a bean, and the length of all of the beans in a line, and divided.
We started our bean investigation.  We put the beans in damp paper towel, and then into a baggie.


Our windowsill will soon be a garden!


We made estimates of how many beans will germinate, and represented that in a variety of forms.
