Cooking with Integers

Last week I found a new obsession - The Teaching Channel.  This website is awesome to get new ideas!  I went to just look around on the website and found a lesson on integers that is awesome!  I can't seem to embed the video so I guess we just have to settle on a link.

From this video (that even supplies a lesson plan!) I created a flipchart to use during the lesson.

The flipchart has 20 interactive slides to go through the cooking scenario.  If you have ActiveInspire you can download the Flipchart from my Google docs.

I placed my activity sheets in my google documents.  Click HERE for the addition/multiplication worksheet and HERE for the subtraction sheet.  I used the same subtraction worksheet from the lesson plan downloaded from The Teaching Channel. 

To end this post I would like to leave you with this fun rap video.  I can't wait to show my kids!
