### Father's Day and Juneteenth; 3 Activities

For Father's Day (Links to different activities)

• Thank you Mother and Father for all of those diapers (2015) - Students compare the cost of buying disposable versus cloth diapers. They estimate how much they cost their parents in diapers and consider how much they will spend on diapers when they have a baby. There is quite a bit of scaffolding built into the activity for students who might have limited experience with linear relationships and equation writing.

• Blueberry Muffin Suprise (2013) - This Sunday is Father’s Day. I looked up a recipe for something that I’m sure that my dad will love and I’m going to surprise him.
