Chocolate Fact Families

After reading the books, Addition with Hershey Kisses and Subtraction with Hershey Kisses, we used caramel and regular Hershey Kisses to created fact families. 
Using a template made by our teacher in MaxWrite, we recorded our fact families.

a Powerpoint to show how a fact family is made.

Candy Bar Graphing

After choosing our favorite Hershey Miniature candy bar, we used
MaxCount to create a graph of our class results.

Two more people chose the Dark Chocolate than the Krackel bar. 14-1=13, there were 13 votes more for the favorite Hershey Chocolate than the least favorite Mr. Goodbar.
