2:

Recognize area as a measurement of 2D shapes.

Grade:

3rd

Vocabulary:

Area, Length, Width, Formula, Distributive property

Activities:

1. Students continued creating their "Dream House." They put in all the things they wanted in their house. Once completed, they found the area of each room, pool, stores, etc. they wanted in their house. They used the formula A=LxW.

 

2. Students found the area of a variety of shapes and wrote a multiplication problem for each.

 

3. Students solved for area using the distributive property.

Home Exploration

Challenge Problem:

Draw irregular figures for the student. Tell them to find the area of the irregular shapes given.

Challenge Data:

Guiding Questions:

1. How do you find area?

 

2. What do you need to do to the irregular shapes in order to find the area of the whole figure?

Challenge Answer:

Target 2

Lesson Type:

Grade:

3rd

Vocabulary:

Flip, Slide, Turn, Quarter turn, Half turn, Quadrant

Activities:

1. Students were given an image made of tangrams. They needed to show me what it would look like if it flipped, slided, or turned. They showed me 90, 180, 270, and 360 degree turns with the image.

 

2. Students flipped shapes, slid shapes, quarter turned it, and half turned it. They drew how the shape would look like if that happened.

 

3. Students started creating an image of their choice on grid paper using plots. They drew their image in quadrant one. Next class, they will have to show how the image would look if it was flipped, turned or slid. They will be drawing it in the other quadrants.

Home Exploration

Have students draw different shapes or pictures. Have then show you what a turn means, flip means, and slide means.
