Pizza Party

Planning a pizza party takes skills of mathematics and economics! How many people will be at your party? How many pieces do you estimate each person will eat? How many pizzas should be veggie? The questions are endless! And they all require modeling with math and economic decision-making!

For example, I love these MEA lessons from CPalms that help students model real world problems.

Read the book Curious George and the Pizza Party and/or view Curious George Makes a Pizza.

After you are familiar with the story, try the K-2 MEA Pizza Party with Curious George . In this lesson, your students read letters and data sets and try to make decisions about satisfying needs for a pizza party.

If you love that lesson, here are more Pizza MEA lessons to try!
