Nope…I’m not talking about a recipe. I do this activity each year with my students when we are working on number sense for seven. During math morning meeting I told them I was making corn and tomato soup but I could only use a combination of seven pieces of corn and tomato in all. They helped me come up with all the different combinations of seven pieces of corn and tomato. Here’s what out chart looked like. I gave them a little mini lesson on how to draw corn and tomatoes….I’m always amazed at the ohhs and ahhhs I get….because I can’t draw…at all.
After we did the problem whole group they worked on their own to make corn and tomato soup using seven pieces in all.
After they completed their page we met back whole group and several students showed their combinations on the promethean board. They had to drag over corn and tomatoes to display their combination, write the equation and the answer.
