Animal Crackers: Integrating Math Skills and Research on Mammals (Video Clip)

Presented by: S.O.S. Team

Subject Area(s):

Grade Level(s):


This teaching idea involves a video clip in which a classroom teacher, Marie Sciretta, used a box of animal crackers for a sorting exercise for math skills with her first grade students. The students had to list which ones were mammals using tally sheets and calculators. She also brainstormed where to find information on mammals and created positive anticipation for a visit to the library (the next day) to locate books and collect information on mammals.
