Breaking it Out With Math

Huntsville City School Technology Tech, Kim Britton, got the students all hyped up for math Wednesday afternoon.  Of course, for those of you who know, Mrs. Britton, you know this is no surprise.  The students in Mrs. Montgomery's fourth grade class split off into three teams to try and solve the Great Monkey Multiplication Mystery.  Students had to cooperate and work out math problems to get clues to how to open the locked metal boxes.  Walking into the room, a visitor may think it is utter chaos, but real learning was happening as students supported each other and worked to solve the complicated and multi-step problems.  You will be happy to know that in the end, the students were able to find the hidden keys, unlock the boxes and give the monkey his bananas.
