March 6-8 Activity

A leprechaun has come to live at your house but would love to find his way back home.  Have your child determine where the leprechaun is originally from and design a plan for him to return.  This plan must include mathematical vocabulary, an algebraic equation to solve at every stop (must have at least 2), and a total cost estimate for the trip.  Ask them to include mileage and ask your child questions such as: How much would it cost in gas if he drove a car%3f How long will the trip take%3f Can the leprechaun make it in one day%3f If not, how many stops will he make%3f, etc.
