I posed the question, how many animals were in the jungle in total? Scholars loved the book and couldn't wait to get started! They had lots of strategies for solving the problem.
|Andrea created a chart using cubes.|
|She then grouped the cubes into 10's and 1's.|
|She then counted the cubes totaling 54.|
|Jacky created an organized list then counted.|
|Angely created a chart and went back two times to check her work and make revisions. Her work is evidence of sticking with a problem until you get it right!!.|
|Major solved the challenge question...'What if each animal had 1 baby? How many animals would be in the jungle then?'...in his head! I asked him to record his thinking.|
