Monster Math Squad Monster Garbage Heap

Monster Math Squad Monster Garbage Heap

When Garbage Monster wants to take a nap, he climbs on top of his garbage heap and snoozes. But his heap has gotten too high for him to climb onto! He needs the Squad to save the day! They get various things for Garbage Monster to stand on, to help him reach the top, but none of them boost him high enough. Through the concept of GREATER they discover they need to have more than one box stacked up to get Garbage Monster high enough, but then the stack is too high for him to get onto! Again, using GREATER they learn to make stairs out of the boxes. That works! Shhh! Garbage Monster is sleeping! Word of the Day: GREATER. Math Concept: Adding one box at a time makes stairs that can be climbed on.
