In this C3 aligned lesson, students will use mathematical thinking to compare the area of the White House to the area of a slave cabin. This lesson builds upon 4th grade math standards of area and perimeter but expands upon them to include important 5th grade standards related to fluency with decimals. To incorporate ELA and Social Studies, students will read paired-texts to learn about the institution of slavery and its relationship to the history of the White House. This lesson touches on a number of literacy standards for social studies and is an example of a math/social studies literacy block.
This lesson allows first grade students to experiment with mixing colors to learn visual arts and mathematical terms and concepts. Students will create a tissue paper collage based on the work of Henry Matisse.
Students will discover the Fibonacci pattern of repeating shapes and numbers through manipulatives, mathematical reasoning, poetry and art.
Students will be able to create and illustrate a word problem using an equation with a minimum of three whole numbers that total 11.
Students will identify geometric shapes, lines, and angles using Origami.
In this download you will find links to resources for information regarding OK C3 standards and CCSS. These resources include detailed information about CCSS as well as practical resources for Authentic Implementation of OK C3 standards and CCSS.
In this introductory lesson, students will gain an understanding about the relationship between positive and negative numbers are used together.
In this second grade lesson, students will work together using measuring tools to make original snowflakes from specified directions and to make specific directions for making a snowflake.
In this lesson students will explore volume and capacity through modeling. Students will read the book Counting on Frank and discuss various scenarios involving volume. Students will make predictions about volume based on those scenarios. Students will experiment with grocery bags and cans to model and estimate the number of dog food cans that can actually fit in a grocery bag.
Students will explore the relationship between area and perimeter and what happens to their measurements when shape is changed in some way.
