I decided to do 2 math museums this week since we are just wrapping up the year and not a place where I can expect them to learn new concepts.

We did an equivalent fraction museum-they had to create models that could represent 2 equivalent franction. The example I give them was a tower the I built that was three levels high with the legs on the bottom level being a different color each level had 4 legs. I said this represents 2 equivalent franction in one model becuase each level represent a part and one of the three parts in red so it shows 1/3. Each level also has 4 legs so there are 12 total legs and 4 of them are red so it also is showing 4/12. Therefore 1/3 is equal to 4/12. Then I let them go for it. I had to walk around and assist and help with misconceptions but it went really well. So they were clamor in for their next math museum day.

A few days later we did a perimeter museum. I use colored bears to create an L shape and I labeled each side with the number of bears on each side. Then we added them up to find the perimeter. They seemed to get it so I let them go. They did a great.

This is going in the to-be-used-again file
