I'm thinking about doing some kind of a class cookbook project with my 6th grade math classes. I remember at a workshop I went to, another teacher was talking about it but she didn't get into depth. We just finished our unit on adding/subtracting fractions and mixed numbers and we're getting into our multiplication/division of fractions unit, and I thought a project involving real life applications of fractions would really hit home with some of these kids.
Has anyone ever done this that can share what exactly you asked the students to do? I'm just looking for some guidelines. I googled class cookbook project and didn't really find what I was looking for.
Thanks in advance!
