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.

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.

Volume of Triangular Prisms
 Resource ID: TXLS045
 Grade Range: 7
 Subject: Math
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
 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.

Data Banks to Bar Graphs
 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.

Comparing Fractional Parts
 Resource ID: TXLS043
 Grade Range: 2
 Subject: Math
Students will participate in wholegroup and smallgroup instruction as they collaborate and use manipulatives, visuals, and handson 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.

Polygons and Quadrilaterals
 Resource ID: TXLS121
 Grade Range: 2
 Subject: Math
Learners will engage in higher level thinking and studentcentered activities by building on prior knowledge of geometry, actively listening to a polygon story, and applying the new vocabulary through various handson rotations.

Building a Watershed
 Resource ID: TXLS122
 Grade Range: 7
 Subject: Science
Students will model the effects of human activity on watersheds.

Text Evidence and the Moral Lesson
 Resource ID: TXLS123
 Grade Range: 2
 Subject: ELA & Reading
Teacher will read How Spiders Got Eight Legs as a readaloud. Students will write notes about what they think the moral is. Students will collaborate in groups to determine what they think the moral lesson is. Students will reread, highlight, and write the text evidence that identifies the moral lesson.

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.

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 elapsedtime calculations.

Navigating Informational Text with Text Mapping
 Resource ID: TXLS051
 Grade Range: 2
 Subject: ELA & Reading
Students will apply the comprehension strategy of text mapping by using a scroll to sequence and organize information. They also will describe the order of events using time order transition words.

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 realworld situations.

Push Back, Pull Forward
 Resource ID: TXLS118
 Grade Range: 3
 Subject: Science
Students will conduct an experiment to demonstrate force, such as pushes and pulls.

Summarization Routine
 Resource ID: TXLS124
 Grade Range: 7
 Subject: ELA & Reading
Teacher will teach the routine of summarization by modeling with a short passage. The teacher will then have students practice in partners and have students share. Next, students will try writing a summary of their own. Students will use the rubric created by the teacher to make sure they have met the requirements of a wellwritten summary.

Save the Factory!
 Resource ID: TXLS071
 Grade Range: 4
 Subject: Science
Students will design an experiment to test the outcome of friction in force and motion.
