After teaching a math concept, have students work in small groups to make up story problems using readily available objects for manipulatives. For example, a real-life math problem might use plastic coins, popsicle sticks, or thumb tacks that the teacher has available for student use. Students then take pictures of themselves in scenes that illustrate the story problem, and create a PowerPoint or Impress presentation to show their work. Students could use a digital camera if available, or the webcams available on their Eeepc.
