Try for Five: Decomposing Numbers with the Food Pyramid

Fifth in a mini math unit, this instructional activity develops number sense by having your class compose and decompose numbers up to five by creating meals with items from the food pyramid. On paper plates, they draw or glue pictures of different foods from two groups (or more) making addends that create a larger number. On the back, they write number sentences to represent their "meals." Various practice activities with 10-strips reinforce the concepts. You and your class will enjoy applying math concepts to food and nutrition!
