Zoo Math Days -- Thursday

Thursday is our trip to the zoo for Zoo Math Days. We'll be tackling all kinds of real life math problems from comparing sizes of birds in the Zoo to determining the microclimates in Manatee Springs. These real world problems will serve as our transitional activity as we move from the study of geometry to work on number sense and algebra for the last part of our year together.

We are working to prepare the needed measuring tools, and will be gathering information that will be helpful when we arrive at the zoo.

Check the permission slip for a list of helpful things to bring with you to the zoo. Let's pack those lunches, put on our comfy clothes and head off. I'm looking forward to a great day.
