Orangutans Count, Order, and Add (4 weeks)

Orangutans sometimes make loud howls and bellows that can be heard from miles away! They also use their fingers (and toes!) to count, order, and add.

 

  • Students locate positive and negative whole numbers on a number line by scaling the number line by powers of ten
  • Students round numbers to the tens place and compare whole numbers up to 1000
  • Students identify a missing part (addend) when given one part (addend) and a whole (sum) from 3 to 1000
  • Students add and subtract positive whole numbers on a number line using their own strategies


Addition Fluency with African Wild Dogs (4 weeks)

When it comes to African Wild Dogs, addition is essential. This is because they have red, black, brown, yellow, and white patches of fur—and no two dogs have the same markings. If they want to remember what their friends look like, they have to remember exactly how many patches they have, and what colors.

 

  • Students develop fluency with addition and subtraction of whole numbers by choosing two numbers with a target sum
  • Students round numbers to the tens place and estimate the sums of integers

 

My Hippopotamus Hones Multiplication Skills (4 weeks)

Hippos can weigh up to 7,000 lbs (3200 kg), which is as much as three small cars! To make sure they’re eating enough to keep up this massive reputation, they mastered multiplication.

 

  • Students use various tools and groupings to develop an understanding of multiplication and division
  • Students double known basic facts to find the product of more challenging basic facts
  • Students add or remove a group to or from a known basic fact to determine the product of another basic fact
  • Students use known basic facts and double one factor and halve the other to determine the product of a more challenging problem

 

Meet Multiplication Automaticity and Asian Elephants (4 weeks)

Asian Elephants like to meet in big groups (though not as big as the savannah elephants) for parties. At these parties, they need to make sure they have the exact count of elephants. The Asian elephant is especially talented at multiplication automaticity (to keep track of the parties, of course).

 

  • Students use the sum of two known basic facts to determine the product of a more challenging problem
  • Students build arrays and use partial products to “cover” a rectangular area model of multiplication up to 12x12
  • Students determine factors and products using a table and common ratios (such as 4 tires for every 1 car)
  • Students multiply 0, 1, 5, and 10 by numbers 1-10 and 11-100
  • Students multiply 2, 4, and 8 by numbers 1-10 and 11-20

 

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

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)

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 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. 

 

  • 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)

We have a hunch that giant pandas 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
