Students will identify the American flag as an important symbol of the United States. They will collect and sort data from the American Flag and compare the attributes. Students will sort and count red stripes and white stripes, long stripes and short stripes, long red stripes and long white stripes, short red stripes and short white stripes. Students will compare the stripes using the number line. They will also count stars by 1’s and 10’s in this integrated lesson plan.
Students will piece together a puzzle with numbered pieces (1-10 or 11-20) to reveal an image which they should recognize as a symbol that represents the United States (ie: American flag, bald eagle, U.S. Presidents George Washington or Abraham Lincoln) in this integrated lesson plan.
This lesson is designed to provide students explicit instruction on counting forward using something they love: Candy! Students will use the candy as a real-world example of a time when counting forward is a useful strategy, in the context of getting goodie bags ready for a party.
In this Kindergarten MEA lesson, students will work cooperatively to help Sweetie Cake Pops improve their recipe. They will work in groups to look at a data table and generate responses orally and written. Additionally, this lesson has a mathematical focus of skip counting by tens.
Model Eliciting Activities, MEAs, are open-ended, interdisciplinary problem-solving activities that are meant to reveal students’ thinking about the concepts embedded in realistic situations. Click here to learn more about MEAs and how they can transform your classroom.
Poor Professor Dupont! He is missing his prized cockatoos! Help Professor Dupont find his special birds one by one as you turn the page. After helping Professor Dupont find his special cockatoos, create a classroom tree and sort the birds by color. You will have a fine feathered fantastic time counting and sorting!
Get your antlers ready and be prepared to travel to the Great White North to count to 100 by 1's and 10's. Bullwinkle the Moose and Fred the Reindeer show students how counting to 100 can be fun. Part of this interactive lesson can be done every morning during calendar time to continue practicing counting by 1’s and 10’s.
Students will learn about the concept of ones and tens and how 10 is a friendly number that we can utilize in various ways in mathematics. They will physically manipulate snap cubes to make a ten train and add on randomly selected ones that will include the numbers 11-19. After that students will draw representations of the numbers 11-19 and finally write the two-digit number that a ten train and a selected group of ones will create.
In this lesson students will learn to count to 100 by 10's. The relationship between the numbers 1-10 and 10-100 will be made using the 100's chart followed by a PowerPoint story about Little Count the Caterpillar. Students will make their own Little Count the Caterpillar using circle body segments, where each circle represents the numerals 10, 20, 30...
Students explore lengths of fish to determine if fish are too long to fit in different sized aquariums. Students will use non-standard units and measuring tools to compare the lengths of fish and boxes without being able to directly hold the fish near the boxes.
The students will receive explicit instruction from the teacher on the definition of decomposing a number and how to represent a decomposition with manipulatives, drawings, and equations. The students will use linking cubes to reflect numbers from 11-19, and to show their understanding of how to decompose a number. Students will record decompositions as an equation.
The students will show understanding of the conservation of numbers regardless of the order in which objects were counted. The students will be able to tell "how many" without recounting objects and be able to explain that the amount is the same because no objects were added or taken away.
In this lesson, students will show understanding of the conservation of numbers regardless of the order in which they were counted. Student will be able to tell "how many" without recounting objects and be able to explain that the amount is the same because no objects were added or taken away.
In this lesson, students will show understanding that "one more" is the next counting number. Student will be able to tell "how many" without recounting objects and be able to explain that the total amount is the next counting number because it is one more.
In this lesson, students will represent numbers 11-19 using a unit of ten and a group of ones using objects. As an optional extension task, students will be challenged to use their knowledge of numbers 11-20 represented as a unit of ten and a group of ones to complete posters in a mock real-world situation involving free tickets.
