Tidewater VA Food Lion Family Math - Feb. 27, 2014 Tidewater VA Food Lion Family Math - Feb. 27, 2014

TVA DAC Workshop
Food Lion Family Math Night
Thursday, February 27, 2014
6 - 8 PM
Food Lion, Little Creek Rd. 
Norfolk, Virginia

The Tidewater NESI families participated in a Family Math Night sponsored by NESI, Food Lion and the Food Lion Manager, Mr. Brett Staples.  Mr. Staples provided the families with scavenger hunt like Math activities (see examples below).  

After the families completed their activities, they received a goodie bag from Food Lion. They also received a Math activity bag from NESI which included a Math story book and various Math games and activities.

When each family signed in, they were given "scavenger hunt" pages (provided by Food Lion) for their grade level. Each grade level had different questions.


Below are some example questions in the scavenger hunt:

Go to Aisle 10 and
  • Count the different types of dog treats
  • Count the different types of cat toys
  • Circle the different shapes you find in this aisle: rectangle, square, circle, triangle, cube, sphere, cylinder
  • Find a pattern on this aisle
  • How many types of pets could you buy food for on this aisle?


Go to the Dairy Aisle 10 and
  • Find the ice cream cones. How many are in the package?
  • Find your favorite type of popsicle. How many are in the box?
  • How many steps do you think it will take to walk this aisle from end to end? Then count the actual steps and record it.

In the Produce Section
  • Count the different types of fruit that are round.
  • Count the different types of vegetables that are round.
  • How many round fruits and vegetables have you found?      
    ___ + ___ =
  • Find a carton of strawberries and a carton of blueberries. Which has more? Which has less?
  • Find the following fruits: lemon, grapefruit, orange, apple, and arrange them in order from smallest in size to biggest in size.
  • Place the same fruits one at a time on the scale. Which one weighs the most? Which one weighs the least?
  • Find vegetables fruits that are purple, red, yellow, green, blue, and brown and classify them into given categories.

Some students had scavenger hunt math questions that required them to use the breakfast cereal aisle.
As their parents were filling in the evaluation forms and teachers were getting students their NESI goodie bags, the manager got down on his knees so he could get on each kid's level and said to them "Hey, I really want to thank you for coming and hanging out with us here tonight! I hope you had a good time in the store. We have a little goodie bag for each of you." Then he asked if they'd prefer a football or a basketball.
