Tailgate Trail Mix in a Cup

Tailgate Trail Mix in a Cup is the perfect snack to make with your students right before the Big Game or Football playoffs in January and February. This delicious snack comes with a story you read as you mix it. Each snack item represents something from the football game. You can use the mini book provided to follow the directions to make this snack together. There are loads of activities you can work on after completing the snack such as surveying, graphing, sequencing, explanatory writing, crafting, and more. You can make a tailgate trail mix in a cup craft to do a large class graph or use the bulletin board letters to make a cute display. There is also a coloring version of the craft. Included are a variety of differentiated writing ideas, a donation letter for parents, and mini recipe cards to send home to share with their families. If you enjoyed any of my cup recipes, you will love this one too!
