At the beginning of the year, it is important to get to know your students. One creative way to do that is with this Holiday Recipe Math Project. Students each bring in a recipe that is important to them. One they use to celebrate with their family. Then they work through the steps of creating that recipe, working on elapsed time, measurment, and budgeting. While students are sharing the recipe they have chosen, everyone gets to learn something about that student that is a little deeper than “What’s your favorite color?” or “What did you do last summer?” Download this project for free from my Teachers Pay Teachers store.
