Thanksgiving Nov. 14, 2016

Problem of the Week (Nov. 14, 2016)

Directions: Write your work on a separate sheet of paper. Label the paper with your FULL name, your teacher, and which problem(s) you are handing in, then staple it to this sheet.


Level 1 Turkey fun facts: Wild turkeys have become a common site around the Twin Cities. Have you ever seen one in your yard or neighborhood? I have seen them looking at their own reflection in my glass on my backdoor and roosting in the oak trees in my backyard. Wild turkeys can fly 55 miles per hour. If a turkey flies for 12 minutes, how many miles will it fly?

Level 2 Dates: In the United States, Thanksgiving is celebrated on the 4th Thursday in November. This year it falls on November 24th. There are 365 days in a year. Figure out what date Thanksgiving will be in 2017. Tell me how you figured it out.  Challenge: What date will Thanksgiving be during 2019?

Level 3  Birds of a Feather: Turkeys have 5000-6000 feathers. In a flock of 7 turkeys, how many feathers are there? Your answer should be a range. Challenge: How many feathers would be in a flock that with 150 turkeys?
