The sixth graders went to work for Mr. Wonka the first week of school packaging caramels. They followed Mr. Wonka's #1 Rule: If you have 10 of something, you MUST package. Students grouped caramels into long boxes, flats, cartons and so forth until all the caramels were packaged and ready to ship. They learned about place value, addition and subtraction when "orders" were changed. They were tempted to eat them, but resisted!
