    Woodland Team Transforms Thanksgiving Turkeys into Real World Math
    Posted on 11/22/2019
    Some fifth-graders at Woodland Elementary have made it easier for local shoppers to calculate just how much turkey they need to buy for Thanksgiving this year.

It’s a little bit of project-based learning, real world learning and personalized learning all rolled into one lesson that Woodland teachers Christina Butler and Jakeb Knight dreamt up this year for the 150-plus math students they share. The final products live on in the storefront of a longtime local favorite, Steve’s Meats & Deli off Cincinnati-Dayton Road.
