You have some great ideas here. I really like the Toys-R-Us shopping trip. It is very similiar for a math activity I do involving the Thanksgiving dinner.
A question for you about the Hope Chest project. The shoeboxes are very well decorated. It appears that they are not completely handmade by the students. Do you just give them a bunch of cutouts that they can use to create their design? Thanks!
