OUCH! Band Aid Fractions and Writing

Integrate literature, math, and writing with band aids! Pass out copies of Shel Silverstein's "Band Aids" poem from __Where the Sidewalk Ends__. Then, split kids up into teams of two. Have one kid trace the other on an oversized sheet of paper (butcher paper). Give each team 35 band-aids of various shapes or colors. Using the poem, they stick band-aids on the body outline (where Silverstein says they are placed). Next, they do the math! They figure out the total number of band-aids in Shel Silverstein's poem. Have them count up the total number of band-aids on the body outline. Then, they must refer back to the poem to figure out the total number of band-aids Silverstein used (poem says *box of 35 more*). Once they have figured out the total, have them write a **fraction** for each band-aid shape (or color).

Writing - After the math activity, have kids write about a time they got hurt. Kids love sharing **bruise stories**! Afterwards, use band-aids to perform contraction surgery or number operation!

fantastic post and Thanks for sharing this info. It's very helpful.
