Paper Chain Math Challenge

Are you ready for a math challenge?  This one is a great one!  What is the longest paper chain your group can create from one sheet of 12 x 18 construction paper?  It sounds pretty easy, huh?  Well, it is much harder than it looks!  I had six groups complete the math challenge and here are some of our chains and our results!  Our longest paper chain was 39 feet long!

This math challenge is a great way to get students to work together to creatively solve math related problems!  We actually do one of these a month at our grade level and the kids go crazy for them!  Here is the link to the Paper Chain pack!  The pack contains data sheets, instructions, and more!

Why not get your kids solving a math challenge today?
