    The following was posted on a different site: I've been searching high and low for a teacher resource book that I saw once and cannot find again! It was a book on various math units - candy kisses unit for place values and three billy goats gruff are ones that I remember. They are interactive math units for first/second graders. The book also included worksheets for the various units and one of the activities for the candy kisses unit was called "Which cylinder holds more kisses?" where students made guesses and counts to estimate using unifix cubes.

    I too have been trying to locate this resource so if anyone can help, I'd appreciate it!

    Ilovefirst-you made me giddy thinking a reply came in for my request for help...guess it's not going to be that easy. It is a really fun unit...I might even do it this year starting on day one...to get them excited for our year together. So, keep your fingers crossed that someone will know what I am talking about.

    Maybe I should have mentioned that it seems similar to an AIMS activity but I've searched their site for it and no luck. Also, I used this unit when I student taught 16 years ago! Yikes...an oldie but a goodie-both myself and the unit!

    I wish you could help, too! Oh well, I'll just keep adding to this post so I can keep it high on the list in hope that someone out there might be able to give me some help. There are no indicators at all on my copy of the activity that would lead to the resource or even company...it's so odd!
