Math Centers our kids loved!

I teach second grade, but these centers would work for third too, I think.
We had kids measuring area using CheeseIts. First I made up a sheet with shapes on it. The students estimated first, then measured using the crackers. Best part of all  eating.
We also made a patterning center using skittles. We gave the kids each their own bag of Skittles and they made up their own patterns and recorded them on paper. Then, of course, eat!
We also estimated and measured length of string licorice at a center. Then graphed the lengths of the different pieces on a bar graph.
We got artistic by using strips of paper, dividing a piece of paper into thirds and gluing the strips to make horizontal, vertical, and diagonal lines.
The kids loved all these centers!
