Recycled bottle caps into Math Matching game

       Since our School has earned the Green School certification for many years, we collected plastic bottle caps instead of throwing them away. I decided that it was time to put these beautiful and colorful pieces of plastic to good use around St. Michael Catholic School. 

     My 5th graders are always up for a new project to help or serve someone else.  The kindergarten class directly below our room was our projected target.

      Number Matching and Counting Game

      We found 20 large green  bottle caps from juice containers. The students counted out the correct number of stickers to match the 1 - 20 numbers. The stickers were applied to the green caps. 20 orange caps were found. the numbers 1-20 were printed on labels and applied to the orange caps. Now the Mod Podge work had begun. Several coats of the Mod Podge were applied  to both the green and orange caps.

This is self correcting with the matching number on the underside of the large green caps.

      We will have to wait for the ratings to come back from our kindergarten friends downstairs. Hopefully, we get 2 thumbs up!

Today I am linking up with Forever in Fifth Grade for the February Show and Tell.
