Do you have extra jelly beans from your Easter festivities? Or maybe you are a jelly bean fanatic and have some in the house at all times? Here are some fun ways to use jelly beans for math activities with elementary schoolers! From our experience at After School, having candy as an incentive to play, or part of the game itself, makes students more likely to engage in math without even knowing it. From graphing color groups to comparing values, jelly beans can be great (and yummy) counters to use this week while trying to get rid of extra Easter candy!
