Food seems to be a recurring theme this week! How delicious – 4 bread and butter puddings straight out of the oven from Cafe M at Tamarama. What an effective way to focus on groups of 4 as part of your multiplication & division activities.
Use the photo as a Mental Maths Warm-up by challenging your students to count by 4s for as far as they can. Link to money by giving these puddings a price e.g. 4 for $16 so some students can count by 16s as they count off groups of 4 puddings. Link to division by talking about larger groups e.g. The cafe baked 48 muffins for a party and sold them for $144. How much will 4 cost?
