Unit abstract

 

The following lessons come from the Everyday Math (version 4) curriculum.  I have adapted the lessons by including face-to-face small group lessons, specific technology activities, and center activities (some being small group/buddy and some being independent).  I will be using a group rotation model during the implementation of this unit.  Each day will include a 1 hour block of time, with 20 minutes for each rotation.

 

Students will learn about attributes of two dimensional shapes.  Students will learn about defining and nondefining attributes of shapes.  Students will explore shapes through a building activity.  Students will combine two dimensional shapes to make composite figures.

Lesson 7.5  Attributes of shapes

Lesson 7.7  Defining and Nondefining Attributes

Lesson 8.1  Building shapes with Defining Attributes

Lesson 8.5  Combining 2-Dimensional Shapes

"Democracy in America" by Alexis de Tocqueville is one of the most influential books ever written about America. While historians have viewed "Democracy" as a rich source about the age of Andrew Jackson, Tocqueville was more of a political thinker than a historian. His "new political science" offers insights into the problematic issues faced by democratic society.

Representatives from 10 sovereign Native American nations in Michigan, five State of Michigan agencies, two universities, and three private organizations collaborated to develop two short curriculum units, one for 3rd grade and one for 5th grade. Each grade level unit includes five lesson plans and support materials for teachers using information from two archaeological sites provided by MDOT and cultural, historical, environmental, and indigenous knowledge provided and vetted by Michigan Native American tribal partners participating in the project. The lesson plans use the Inquiry Arc of the College, Career, and Civic Life (C3) Framework and focus on specific Michigan Social Studies Standards. The lesson plans also provide links to Michigan English Language Arts (ELA) literacy standards, as well as science and math applications.
