Let’s make sense of and represent measurement situations at the fair.
Warm-up Notice and Wonder: The Fair
What do you notice? What do you wonder?
Activity 1 Giant Pumpkin Event
Write a list of mathematical questions that could be asked about this image.
Work with your partner to solve the problem you were given by your teacher and show your thinking on a poster. Be sure to write down on your poster the problem you are solving.

Your teacher will give you a set of cards with descriptions and diagrams.
Match each description with a diagram that represents the same situation.
