Grade 5

Read the Headline Story to the students. Encourage them to think of creative ways to solve the problem.

Suppose that every day someone in your class helps the kindergarteners at the crosswalk. A different student helps each day. How many times will each of you get to help?

There are 180 days in our school year. I divided 180 by 26, the number of students in our class, and got 6 and a remainder of 24. So, 6 turns per student × 26 students uses up 156 days, with 24 days left. On those 24 days, most of us could get a 7^{th} turn.
