• Subject: Math

Students will self-discover how to multiply mixed numbers by using background knowledge of estimation, computations, and real world application of a recipe.

• Resource ID: TXLS001
• Grade Range: 8
• Subject: Social Studies

Students will debate the representation argument of the Constitutional Convention and create a compromise that addresses the concerns of both large states and small states (the Great Compromise). Then, students will connect this concept to the present-day system of government.

3. ### Interpreting Division with Remainders

• Resource ID: TXLS004
• Grade Range: 4
• Subject: Math

Students will be given various one- and two-step word problems and asked to interpret the remainder. Students will use foldables and anchor charts to determine under which category (“Drop the Remainder,” “Add One to the Quotient,” “Share the Remainder,” or “The Remainder is the Answer”) the question will fall. After completing that portion of the lesson, students will solve division problems and determine which type of remainder question they are working with. They will use Plicker © cards to display their answers so the teacher can have immediate formative assessment data.

4. ### Distributive Property

• Resource ID: TXLS010
• Grade Range: 3
• Subject: Math

Students break an array apart to represent the sum of two multiplication facts, showing the distributive property.

5. ### Young Architects

• Resource ID: TXLS062
• Grade Range: 4–5
• Subject: Math

Students will explore area by finding square footage of the “dream home” they designed. They will use any method with which they feel confident, using skills that have been previously taught.

6. ### Humpty Dumpty's Mystery Fall

• Resource ID: TXLS056
• Grade Range: 1
• Subject: Math

Students will listen to the story of Humpty Dumpty and share what they know about the nursery rhyme character. Then, they will help solve the math mystery of Humpty Dumpty and determine the number of broken eggs by finding the missing addend.

7. ### Dividing Fractions

• Resource ID: TXLS033
• Grade Range: 5
• Subject: Math

Students will model dividing unit fractions and whole numbers.

8. ### Making Ten is Easy as Pie!

• Resource ID: TXLS021
• Grade Range: 1
• Subject: Math

Students will practice composing 10 by interacting with a counting story, playing a dice game with ten frames and response sheets, and participating in a small group to extend the learning with three addends.

9. ### Area of Composite Figures

• Resource ID: TXLS012A
• Grade Range: 7
• Subject: Math

Students will progress through performance tasks to strengthen their understanding of composite figures. During the performance tasks, students will refer to blueprints to find missing dimensions and solve for composite area.

10. ### Compound Probability: Independent vs. Dependent Events

• Resource ID: TXLS044
• Grade Range: 7
• Subject: Math

Students will review steps for solving compound probability problems through an activity involving doughnuts. Students will then determine the difference between independent and dependent events through compound probability task cards. To encourage students to work through their struggle, students will rate themselves on a scale measuring effort and achievement at the end of the lesson.

11. ### It’s All About the Bend, No Breaking

• Resource ID: TXLS052
• Grade Range: 1
• Subject: Math

Students will experiment with choosing tools to measure around a previously created pet habitat in preparation for choosing appropriately sized food bowls. Students will use a graphic organizer to record tools chosen and why they were or were not a good choice for continuous measurement.

• Resource ID: TXLS011A
• Grade Range: 6
• Subject: Social Studies

Students will create a bar graph representing data about China, Japan, North Korea, South Korea, India, and the United States using information from a data bank. The data bank includes information on population, population density, gross domestic product, literacy rates, annual salary, infant mortality, and land area. Students then will examine a light pollution map to make connections between the data presented and the bar graphs.

12. ### Comparing Fractional Parts

• Resource ID: TXLS043
• Grade Range: 2
• Subject: Math

Students will participate in whole-group and small-group instruction as they collaborate and use manipulatives, visuals, and hands-on activities to explore fractional parts. Ultimately, students will understand that when dividing a whole into fractions, the smaller the fractional part, the greater the number of parts, and the larger the part, the fewer the number of parts.

13. ### Polygons and Quadrilaterals

• Resource ID: TXLS121
• Grade Range: 2
• Subject: Math

Learners will engage in higher level thinking and student-centered activities by building on prior knowledge of geometry, actively listening to a polygon story, and applying the new vocabulary through various hands-on rotations.

14. ### Subtraction on the Move

• Resource ID: TXLS140
• Grade Range: 2
• Subject: Math

The students will participate in a number talk focused on subtraction with the subtrahend of nine. Then they will be paired to rotate around the room working subtraction problems with and without regrouping.

15. ### Time Using the Z Method

• Resource ID: TXLS042
• Grade Range: 4
• Subject: Math

In small groups, students will calculate elapsed time using the Z method. This method helps students better understand the importance of start time and end time when performing elapsed-time calculations.

16. ### Area of Composite Figures

• Resource ID: TXLS039
• Grade Range: 7
• Subject: Math

Student groups will work collaboratively using the appropriate formulas to find the area of simple figures and combine the area of each shape to find the area of composite figures in real-world situations.

17. ### Models of Multiplication

• Resource ID: TXLS151
• Grade Range: 3
• Subject: Math

Students will solve one-step multiplication problems using various multiplication strategies such as objects, pictorial models, arrays, equal groups, repeated addition, and number lines.
