|Magic Number 27: I used this because so many kids kept mistakenly thinking 27 was prime. Many decided to list 27's factors and realized: nope! Not prime!|
It is great to see how much they have improved in their accuracy since we began our graffiti board back in October. Many are even coming up with their own word problems using the number, and some are even using variables to display the number! This is one activity that gets them thinking about numbers as soon as they walk in our classroom. They all can't wait for a chance to show off their ideas!
