Fairy Tales Math Packet
Fairy Tales Math was created as a supplement for a unit I created called Fairy Tales Figurative Language. My students loved reading fairy tales so much that I thought what a great opportunity to connect math and literature.
In this unit, students will read seven fairy tales and learn the following math skills:
* Place Value - Ah! So this is Where Ye Be!
* Subtraction - Princess! Come Back with My Goose!
* Probability - “Fee-Fi-Fo-Fum!”
* Area - Who’s Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf
* Perimeter – I’ll Be Safe, and You’ll Be Sorry
* Coordinate Graphing - I’ll Huff and I’ll Puff and Blow your House In
* Fractions - Mirror, Mirror on the Wall!
* Fractions - The Enchanted Forest
* Arrays - The Clock Struck Midnight
* Factors - A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes
* Communicative and Associative Property - Bubble Bubble Pasta Pot
* Name Collection Box - “Bring me Some Pasta!”
* Prime and Composite Numbers - Love Conquers All
* Geometry Match - I Just Love Happy Endings
* Multiplication Story Problem - Someone’s Been Eating my Porridge
* Multiplication Story Problem - My Story of the Three Bears
* Multiples - This Porridge is too Hot!
