Grade 5

Read the Headline Story to the students. Encourage them to think of creative scenarios that incorporate information from the story.

Sam Houston Elementary School has nearly 1,000 children from kindergarten through 5^{th} grade, with about the same number of students in each grade. Most classes have close to 25 students. No class has more than 25 students. What can you figure out from this information?

- 4 classes would have about 100 children, so 1,000 children would require about 40 classes.
- If there were 42 classes and the same number of classrooms for each of the 6 grades, there would be 7 classrooms for each grade.
