This is an arithmetic lesson that uses Chips Ahoy cookies
Grade Level: 1st
Materials: Chips Ahoy! chocolate chip cookie, cups
Pass out cookies to all the students till the bag of Chips Ahoy! is gone. Have the students break apart the cookie and separate the chocolate chips from the crumbs. The students can then eat the crumbs, but they have to count out the chocolate chips into groups of tens. They should then put every 10 chips in on paper cup. When all the students are done separating their cookies the class can count how many cups there are and figure out if there really are “1,000 Chips” in every bag. This activity helps the kids to count by tens.
