  Cookie Math

Second Grade used the picture book The Doorbell Rang by Pat Hutchins to launch their study of division. In the book, children must figure out how to share a dozen cookies as more and more friends come to the door. Second graders were asked, “How can you divide twenty cookies equally among five friends?”  This fun activity reinforced dividing fair shares, division as repeated subtraction, and the reciprocal nature of division and multiplication. And, of course, there were cookies to share!
