Here are some ideas I have about how you can can make tomorrow’s math lessons extra sweet.
For the little kids:
For older kids:
And of course, there’s also a number of science-y things you can do with candy. Here are some ideas to explore:
I hope you’ve had a fun time this week, and that your candy ends up being a sweet treat not just for your kids, but for your math class tomorrow and in the coming days, too! Happy Halloween!
