Make-and-Takes are an extremely effective way to share hands on strategies with other home school parents for teaching mathematics and literacy.
Decide on a list of topics your group would like to address and ask parents to sign up to demonstrate how they teach the topics.
How you set it up will depend on the amount of participants you have. You may choose to have parents rotate from room to room for activities or have several tables set up in one large room.

Target Age: Make and Take activities can be adapted for any age group.
Time: Approximately 1-2 hours.
