Why Lesson Planet?
I really like this clever lesson plan on using peanuts to help facilitate the learning of addition and subtraction for your young mathematicians. Youngsters use peanuts as "counters" for a variety of math problems that include greater than and less than, and writing large numbers. Then, they complete two worksheets that have answers with letters assigned to them. The letters are plugged into a puzzle which gives them fun facts about peanuts. Very good!
