Pumpkin Pie Fractions

My nine-year-old learned about fractions with pizza. That's such a yummy idea.

But now that Thanksgiving is coming soon, I needed to come up with another - but equally yummy - idea for fractions.

I thought round. I thought delicious. I thought pumpkin pie.

Yum.

This Pumpkin Pie Fractions activity is so easy to create. Once you have it made, it will hold up for hours of hands-on math fun.

Painting With Sugar - Exploring Barbados Through Art

Every time we get creative with Project: Around the World, I realize just how valuable it is. 

We learn a little; we ask questions; we wonder; we expand our world.

And with the state of the world lately, we need to expand our world beyond our own neighborhood.

Our latest project was inspired by the island nation of Barbados. While there are many beautiful and fascinating things about the country (read all about it here), we found our inspiration in their production of sugar cane. Sugar played a very important role in the economic growth of the country.

We concocted our own DIY sugar paint and let ourselves be inspired by the Caribbean nation of Barbados.
