Peas and carrots!

Today during Math Workshop Mrs. Ruark told a story about peas and carrots. According to her story she dipped a spoon into a pot of peas and carrots and scooped out 7 vegetabe pieces, but how many peas and how many carrots. The task for the children was to figure out how many different combinations of peas and carrots they could discover! Some of the children worked in a small group with Mrs. Ruark. Others worked by themselves as Mrs. Cordoza and Mrs. Timmons went from one child to the next so each child could explain his thinking. Peas and carrots! What's for dinner?
