Who Ate More - Fractions on a Number Line

In this activity, students will consider a real-world scenario requiring them to compare two fractional amounts using a number line. Through the use of the number line and peer collaboration, students will recognize equivalency in the two fractional quantities and effectively communicate their understanding of this concept.

###
Spending Money

In this lesson, students use the Understand, Plan, Solve, and Evaluate (UPSE) problem-solving model to first identify and organize relevant information, and then devise and carry out a plan to solve one-step mathematics word problems with a missing addend. The lesson was designed with English learners (ELs) in mind and includes instructional strategies designed to make linguistic and content input comprehensible: a focus on vocabulary, manipulatives, visuals, cooperative learning, anchor charts, graphic organizers, technology applications, and sentence stems/frames.

###
Earth’s Movements

Students will work in small collaborative groups to demonstrate the rotation of the Earth as it revolves around the Sun which creates a day and night cycle.

###
Rise Over Run! Let’s Have Fun!

Students will collaboratively practice identifying and graphing slope and y-intercept.

###
Solving Word Problems with Friends

Students will work in groups and solve one-step word problems using a protocol to guide their thinking.

###
Planting the Seeds of Perimeter

**Students will create planters that meet specific perimeter dimensions. The students will need to determine the number of sides and the perimeter for their planter. **

###
Equations in the Real World

**Students will create and solve equations with variables on one side before comparing the equation with another to determine at what rate they will be equal. **

###
Centers in Subtraction

**Students will participate in multiple centers including a guided math center that reinforces subtraction concepts. **

###
Circuit Designers

**Students will work in small groups of two to three on a structured challenge around circuits which includes requirements such as including using a switch or a conductor. They will then use that knowledge to work on a collaborative challenge to solve a relevant problem related to elephant poaching. Students will create a containment system that will have an alarm system, a lighting system, and a way to pass through. Finally, they will review the other projects and discuss similarities and differences in the design.**

###
Word problems, models and more!

**The students will engage in group activities to solve word problems with and without models as well as writing equations. **

###
Math at the Carnival

**As students rotate through engaging learning stations, they utilize concrete objects, pictorial models, mnemonic devices, and strip diagrams to solve real-world, two and three-digit subtraction word problems, with and without regrouping.**

###
Comparing Fractional Parts Using Pizza

Students will compare fractional parts in a real-world situation using play dough as a model for pizza.

###
Courts of Measure

Students will use measurement tools to measure the dimensions of the basketball court and calculate the area of the court.

###
Crime Scene Two Steppers: Two-step word problems using multiplication and division

Students will collaboratively solve two-step real-world word multiplication and division problems by using a checklist. Students will also solve a two-step word problem by completing a hands-on group activity.

###
Solve Problems using Place Value Strategies with a Carnival Theme

Students will work collaboratively through a fictitious real-world scenario to solve one‐step and multi‐step word problems. The lesson will involve solving addition and subtraction within 1,000 using a variety of strategies based on place value.

###
Colorful Fractions

**Students will represent fractions in multiple ways, such as pattern blocks, fraction strips, and number lines.**

###
How Newton's Laws Apply Every Day

Students collaboratively determine how the characteristics of a real-world job correlate with each of Newton’s Laws and why that is relevant to their own lives.

###
The Great Classroom Escape

Students will work collaboratively to solve six real-world multiplication problems and earn puzzle pieces they can put together to reveal a phone number they can call to escape the classroom.

###
Newton's Second Law

Students will work in partners to investigate Newton’s second law by testing a series of experiments with varying conditions.

###
Keeping it Concrete with Candy

Students will work collaboratively to apply and use digits, value, greater than/less than and base 10 knowledge to communicate numbers up to 1200 with a Halloween theme.
