Math for Peanuts

Peanuts! Get your peanuts! Kids explore math, art, and agriculture concepts focused on peanuts. There is a brief informational text to get them started, and you'll find definitions of five in-text vocabulary words to address. Kids estimate how many nuts are in a given peanut shell (between one and five) and place their guess, written on a large paper peanut, on a classroom bar graph. There is a template here for the peanuts. They check their guesses and write the new number on a different-colored paper peanut, placing it on the graph as well. There are plenty of fun extensions here including making peanut butter, peanut shell art, a peanut toss, and literature options.
