3. I requested many boxes… I used only 3 for a class of 24. Now I have a whole cabinet FILLED with Fruit Loops!
4. The tips of the strings will fray. So I had to roll tape on the end of each student’s string. This is basically what I did the entire time kids were making their necklaces… fixing tape on string. Eventually I figured to put a small knot at the end of the string and then the tape. The knot kept the string from coming apart.
5. Fruit Loops will be EVERYWHERE! Because this took twice as long as I planned, we had to go to art and computers in the middle. (I seriously thought they could get it done in 45 minutes.) So in that time, a few students finished and got to wear theirs. When the students bite them, someones half the Fruit Loop Falls on the ground…. not good in the hallway and computer lab! Note to self – they stay in the classroom or in a Ziploc bag to take home! Actually… next time they can bag it and take it home!
Overall… it was a fun activity and my students REALLY enjoyed it! If you don’t have a 100’s chart, here is one for free of course! Click here for your freebie!
