Students will choose a popsicle stick, solve the math problem, and then "stack" it with the stick that has the right answer in the blue circle on the end. They then solve that problem, find the next matching stick, and so on. A true long-form activity that will allow you a bit of time to set up a new lesson, watch without interfering, or just take a breather from the chaos that is elementary school for a minute.
