Students eating pancakes C.S.I. Case of the Half Eaten Pancake
February is Math Month at Kistler and we have many exciting things planned. Students in grades three through six competed against each other this week in our exciting activity called C.S.I. Case of the Half Eaten Pancake. Students worked in cooperative groups to solve math problems which helped them figure out clues to find our suspect. Classes competed against each other, with the winning team earning extra pancake toppings! Thanks to all of our helpers who flipped pancakes for hundreds of hungry students. Great detective work Kistler kids!
