4th graders are enjoying the fall weather by practicing math outside! We worked on chicken themed math problems this week. 🐓 We worked to find out how many different rectangular chicken coops we could build with 24 feet of fencing. The dimensions could change, but the perimeter had to be 24 feet! Next, we worked on division strategies to figure out how many ounces of feed we could give to each of our chickens based on a fixed total of 50 ounces. 🐔
