Ice
Cream Day 

Math Lesson
for Ice Cream Day
Objective:
The students will define
"single", "double",
"triple" and "quadruple." They
will also complete math equations using the above terms.

Materials

Procedure

Draw
4 ice cream cones on the chalkboard or chart
paper. One should be a single scoop, one a
double, one a triple, and one a quadruple.

Ask
the students to name the type of scoop for each
drawing. Write the word below the matching
cone.

Pass
out the Ice
Cream Math Worksheet and have the students
complete the worksheet individually, or as a class,
depending on ability.

Other
Lesson Ideas

Have
a lesson on multiplication. Have the students
cut out 4 circles (to be scoops of ice cream.)
They should also cut a triangle out to be the
cone. Instruct the students to create a single
dip ice cream cone. Using their single dip ice
cream cone and small manipulatives such as beans,
chocolate chips, etc., the students will practice
their Ones Times Table. To do this instruct the
students to place one bean on the single scoop of ice
cream. This represents the equation 1 x 1 = 1
(one group of one equals one.) Continue in this
manner until the students grasp the 1 times
table. Next, have the students create a double
dip ice cream cone. Instruct them to place 1
bean on each scoop. This represents the equation
2 x 1 = 2 (two groups of one equals 2.) Continue
by having them place 2 beans on each scoop
representing the equation 2 x 2 = 4. This
process may be continued through the 4 times tables,
or whatever is appropriate for the ability of the
students.

Have
a lesson on 3dimensional shapes using an ice cream
cone (for the cone shape) and a scoop of ice cream
(for the sphere shape) as a starting point.

Have
the students create a graph of their favorite flavor
of ice cream.
