Food Lion, Little Creek Rd.
|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:

|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.|
