Composing and Decomposing a Number
In this lesson, students will learn how to compose a number with base 10 blocks, decompose a ten, and then compose the same number a different way.
Are You Part of Our Family?
The teacher will introduce Fact Families through literature. Students will create and represent various Fact Families within 10.
Lines of Symmetry
Students will work collaboratively with a partner to discover what is a line of symmetry.
Finding Clues to Solve Equations and Inequalities
Students will solve one variable twostep equations and inequalities using a variety of materials while working independently and collaboratively in learning stations.
Strike a Pose
The students will solve twostep equations through modeling, expressing algebraically, and writing out the steps to their solutions.
Rational Number Stations
Students will visit two different stations and work as a group to add, subtract, multiply, and divide rational numbers.
Modeling and Solving TwoStep Equations
Students will use various materials to create models of twostep equations. Then, they will take an equation, create their own model, and solve for the variable from the model.

Volume of Triangular Prisms
Students will use handson manipulatives to discover the connection between the shape of the base and the height to determine the volume of a prism.
It’s All About the Bend, No Breaking
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 to explain why those tools were or were not a good choice for continuous measurement.
Area of Composite Figures
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 realworld situations.

Diagramming Dinosaurs
Students will use a verbal representation to explore a constant rate of change in the size of dinosaurs over a period of time and represent their data by graphing.
Compound Probability: Independent vs. Dependent Events
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.

Amazing Graphs
Students will understand the different representations of graphical data, through reading, listening, and comprehension of a word problem so they can devise a problem solving plan that addresses the entire problem.
Building Stamina During Stations
Students will participate in differentiated stations based on counting coins, comparing values, and purchasing items within various wants and needs. Students will selfassess their stamina development throughout the lesson.
