I can SO see this clip from Jimmy Fallon being a fraction and/or percent math lesson. Substitute some plastic eggs and different filling! Could probably even show pieces of this clip, but a few parts would have to be edited out, so don't use it as-is with the kiddos!
If you are constantly searching for resources to complete a research project in your grade level, try using UDLib/Search. Jenny and I are working with Jill DiPaolo from Sussex County Libraries to help gather more resources to support our students' questions of curiosity. Your grade level team leader will be hearing more about this partnership in April.
In the meantime, educators, parents, and students have access to a plethora of online articles through University of Delaware public school databases.
