    How do you plan to use this task?

    After reviewing the Teacher Guide, do you still have any wonders or worries?

    Once you’ve used the task, be sure to share what modifications you made either before or during the task and what you might do differently next time.

    After reviewing the lesson, I wonder how might I differentiate this task? I’m teaching a Grade 4 class that has several strong students who have a grasp of concepts, but another group of students who are considerably weaker, and require more support. How would I “level up” this task for my high students to challenge them?

      What if you had double the amount of crackers? How much cheese would be needed then? What if you had HALF the amount of crackers? How much cheese would be needed then? What if the party size doubled? Halved? Tripled? Could you also ask about drinks? What if each party guest drank 1/3 of a soda. How much soda is needed? Should my grocery list be for a 6-pack or a 12-pack?

        Loving these! Really leveraging the idea of scaling in tandem is so helpful and can better emerge the model of a double bar model / double number line then eventually a ratio table!

      Modifying the struggle prompt would be key!
      You could have crackers and cheese in class for some who need concrete and craft extensions for those well above!
