Traditions around food and feasts provide rich opportunities to connect math at school with children’s experiences at home. From Diwali to Thanksgiving, fall is a season of special meals with loved ones.
The holiday season usually brings with it any number of family dinners and communal feasts. For young children, this is a great time to engage in math.
The holidays are coming up, and usually that involves a lot of eating. This provides plenty of opportunities to find math all around us.
