1st-4th Math Coach Constantly Searching for New Ideas

Man Vs. Food PrBL

This idea is in its infancy right now, just a random thought I put up on Twitter a few days ago.

If you haven’t been able to tell from The Great Burger Experiment…I’m into food. I think it is something that grabs kids’ attention immediately and if there is some substance and perplexity behind that initial interest it can lead to a great activity. With that in mind, here goes nothing.

The boxes on the slides with locations are embedded YouTube videos. The last three slides are handouts for the kids to use as we watch the videos together. I think this is pretty self-explanatory overall but if you have any questions you’re more than welcome to comment below. If you’re interested in trying the lesson yourself, I can e-mail a copy of the Keynote presentation. Enjoy!
