Soda Math - Kid Style

Split students up into groups. Give each group some sugar packets to experiment with **multiplication strategies**. How many packs do they have? Tell them that each pack has 4 grams of sugar. How can they figure out how many grams of sugar they have?

Once they have figured it out, give each group a different can of soda. Can they figure out how many packs are in their can of soda? First, have them **estimate**! Then, they **solve**! They could use their **multiplication strategies**. More advanced students might figure out that they can get their answer faster by **dividing**. Students collaborate and problem solve to get the solution! Was their estimated number close to the final result?
