Green Turtles Are Great at Multiplication: Automaticity II (4 weeks)

Have you ever wanted to mow the lawn? Green turtles love mowing lawns—underwater lawns, that is. They are often referred to as the ocean’s lawnmowers because they eat a lot of vegetation and keep seagrasses from getting too tall. Some might think that green turtles just eat, but they don’t: they eat and multiply. They multiply to keep track of all the grass they’re eating, and that makes them great at multiplication automaticity.

  • Students multiply 3, 6, and 12 by numbers 1-10 and 11-20
  • Students multiply 9, 10, and 11 by numbers 1-10 and 11-20
  • Students multiply 5, 15, and 25 by numbers 1-10
  • Students multiply 7, 14, and 15 by numbers 1-10


Fractions and Decimals with Humphead Wrasse (4 weeks)

Have you ever wondered how big a Humphead Wrasse is? It’s big. Humphead Wrasse can grow to 6.7 feet (or 2 meters) in length and weigh up to 400 pounds (or 180 kilograms). It may not be the best-known fish on the reef (even if it is one of the biggest reef fish), but that doesn’t mean it’s bad at math. In fact, Humphead Wrasse are pros at fractions and decimals.

 

  • Students cut rods into equal parts and use those rods to compare fractions with like numerators or like denominators
  • Students use money and time amounts to build fraction equivalencies
  • Students choose between money and time amounts to build fraction equivalencies
  • Students use a table to find equivalent fractions and scaling factors for common fractions
  • Students use a number line to select and place fractions, improper fractions, and mixed numbers

 

Tigers Know Time and Money Measurements (4 weeks)

Tigers are the largest wild cats in the world—even bigger than lions! They are great swimmers, they love water, and frequently cool off in streams or pools. Tigers have been around for a very long time, and only they know how to keep track of it (because they know how to tell time). So there aren’t any arguments about paying each other back for favors, they also decided a while back to learn how to count money. Come learn time and money with Earth’s fiercest felines!

 

  • Students explore and use clocks to set and tell time to the nearest hour, half-hour and five minutes
  • Students read and set times on an analog clock to the nearest minute
  • Students solve addition and subtraction problems with discrete amounts of time
  • Students organize and represent numerical data on a line plot to a whole, half and quarter unit scale, and interpret these line plots to answer questions about the data

 

Geometry with Giant Pandas (4 weeks)

Giant pandas love bamboo, and when we say they love it, we mean it. Bamboo accounts for 99 percent of a panda’s diet. They can spend about twelve hours a day just eating bamboo—or are they just eating? We have a hunch that they learned geometry, and they practice geometry with the bamboo shoots before eating them. What do you think?

 

  • Students construct triangles, quadrilaterals, and polygons, and use a ruler to measure their sides
  • Students define and classify geometric figures that have up to 3 dimensions
  • Students define and classify polygons, including different types of triangles and quadrilaterals
