We don't need an excuse to make cookies.
We do need a reason to make 100 cookies.
100 Day is a good reason to make 100 cookies.
We figured out that 20 kids each had to make 5 cookies.
And we set to work.
Five cookies each, five chocolate chips each - and one for the tummy.
100 cookies on three trays. We counted by fives and discovered that 35 + 35 + 30 is 100.
100 cookie on 2 plates. That one was easier. One of the mathemagicians remembered that 100 divided into 2 equal groups was 50.
We shared our 100 cookies with our families who joined us for a morning of fun math activities.
Before eating a cookie, the kids had to offer one to their grown up.
Mathemagicians need to have good manners as well as good number sense!
