This guide features a veritable treasure chest of activities, interweaving mathematics and literature with cooperative learning and the interest engendered by collections of small everyday objects (the “treasures”). Student enthusiasm is off the scale—and so is the rainbow of mathematical and scientific concepts that students experience!
Mathematics strands explored include discrete mathematics, statistics, number, logic and language. The educational sequence of these activities is designed to build real-life understandings of graphing, sorting, and classification while encouraging cooperation and appreciation for the many ways we can recycle and reuse materials.
