Snowman and Math

Sorry, another teaching post.

I don't know who thought it would be a good idea for us to have school this Monday and Tuesday. Mother Nature had other plans for us on Monday, but had nothing up her sleeve for Tuesday. So this morning I got up like I do every other day for work dreading this potentially crazy day. I knew the students would be too excited for Christmas and vacation to get any work done. Planning for today was going to take some real teaching magic. I some how came up with these crazy directions that required students to cut out three circles with varying diameters. Yup, you guessed it, this math teacher came up with a math lesson having students create a snowman while incorporating a lesson on circles. Amazingly this lesson was a hit and my day went as smooth as anyone could hope for.

Enjoy ~SJ
