Title: Stop, Look, and Find Shapes in Our School and Community!
Description:
This is a projectbased lesson that provides many handson opportunities for students to learn about shapes in their environment. Students are challenged to find shapes in our world using everyday technology. Students review the characteristics of basic shapes such as squares, triangles, circles, etc. They will then learn how to use digital cameras to capture shapes in the environment and will create a digital book of their photos.
Standard(s): [TC2] (02) 7: Use digital tools to access and retrieve information. [TC2] (02) 8: Use digital environments to exchange ideas with individuals or groups. [MA2013] (0) 4: Understand the relationship between numbers and quantities; connect counting to cardinality. [KCC4] [MA2013] (0) 17: Describe objects in the environment using names of shapes, and describe the relative positions of these objects using terms such as above, below, beside, in front of, behind, and next to. [KG1] [MA2013] (0) 18: Correctly name shapes regardless of their orientations or overall size. [KG2] [MA2013] (0) 20: Analyze and compare two and threedimensional shapes, in different sizes and orientations, using informal language to describe their similarities, differences, parts (e.g., number of sides and vertices or "corners"), and other attributes (e.g., having sides of equal length). [KG4] [MA2013] (0) 21: Model shapes in the world by building shapes from components (e.g., sticks and clay balls) and drawing shapes. [KG5] [MA2013] (0) 22: Compose simple shapes to form larger shapes. [KG6] [MA2013] (1) 5: Relate counting to addition and subtraction (e.g., by counting on 2 to add 2). [1OA5] [MA2013] (1) 19: Distinguish between defining attributes (e.g., triangles are closed and threesided) versus nondefining attributes (e.g., color, orientation, overall size); build and draw shapes to possess defining attributes. [1G1] [MA2013] (1) 20: Compose twodimensional shapes (rectangles, squares, trapezoids, triangles, halfcircles, and quartercircles) or threedimensional shapes (cubes, right rectangular prisms, right circular cones, and right circular cylinders) to create a composite shape, and compose new shapes from the composite shape. (Students do not need to learn formal names such as "right rectangular prism.") [1G2] [MA2013] (1) 21: Partition circles and rectangles into two and four equal shares; describe the shares using the words halves, fourths, and quarters; and use the phrases half of, fourth of, and quarter of. Describe the whole as two of, or four of the shares. Understand for these examples that decomposing into more equal shares creates smaller shares. [1G3] [MA2013] (2) 24: Recognize and draw shapes having specified attributes such as a given number of angles or a given number of equal faces. (Sizes are compared directly or visually, not compared by measuring.) Identify triangles, quadrilaterals, pentagons, hexagons, and cubes. [2G1] [MA2013] (2) 25: Partition a rectangle into rows and columns of samesize squares, and count to find the total number of them. [2G2] [MA2013] (2) 26: Partition circles and rectangles into two, three, or four equal shares; describe the shares using the words halves, thirds, half of, a third of, etc.; and describe the whole as two halves, three thirds, or four fourths. Recognize that equal shares of identical wholes need not have the same shape. [2G3]

[3OA1] [MA2013] (3) 2: Interpret wholenumber quotients of whole numbers, e.g., interpret 56 ÷ 8 as the number of objects in each share when 56 objects are partitioned equally into 8 shares, or as a number of shares when 56 objects are partitioned into equal shares of 8 objects each. [3OA2] [MA2013] (3) 3: Use multiplication and division within 100 to solve word problems in situations involving equal groups, arrays, and measurement quantities, e.g., by using drawings and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem.

(Excludes compound units such as cm^{3} and finding the geometric volume of a container.) Add, subtract, multiply, or divide to solve onestep word problems involving masses or volumes that are given in the same units, e.g., by using drawings (such as a beaker with a measurement scale) to represent the problem. (Excludes multiplicative comparison problems (problems involving notions of "times as much").) (See Appendix A, Table 2.) [3MD2] [MA2013] (3) 18: Draw a scaled picture graph and a scaled bar graph to represent a data set with several categories.

[4NBT6] [MA2013] (4) 12: Explain why a fraction ^{a}/_{b} is equivalent to a fraction ^{nxa}/_{nxb} by using visual fraction models, with attention to how the number and size of the parts differ even though the two fractions themselves are the same size. Use this principle to recognize and generate equivalent fractions. [4NF1] [MA2013] (4) 13: Compare two fractions with different numerators and different denominators, e.g., by creating common denominators or numerators or by comparing to a benchmark fraction such as ^{1}/_{2}. Recognize that comparisons are valid only when the two fractions refer to the same whole. Record the results of comparisons with symbols >, =, or <, and justify the conclusions, e.g., by using a visual fraction model. [4NF2] [MA2013] (4) 14: Understand a fraction ^{a}/_{b} with a > 1 as a sum of fractions ^{1}/_{b}. [4NF3] [MA2013] (4) 15: Apply and extend previous understandings of multiplication to multiply a fraction by a whole number. [4NF4] [MA2013] (4) 16: Express a fraction with denominator 10 as an equivalent fraction with denominator 100, and use this technique to add two fractions with respective denominators 10 and 100.

[4MD5] [MA2013] (4) 24: Measure angles in wholenumber degrees using a protractor. Sketch angles of specified measure. [4MD6] [MA2013] (4) 25: Recognize angle measure as additive. When an angle is decomposed into nonoverlapping parts, the angle measure of the whole is the sum of the angle measures of the parts.

Recognize right triangles as a category, and identify right triangles. [4G2] [MA2013] (4) 28: Recognize a line of symmetry for a twodimensional figure as a line across the figure such that the figure can be folded along the line into matching parts. Identify linesymmetric figures and draw lines of symmetry. [4G3] [MA2013] (5) 1: Use parentheses, brackets, or braces in numerical expressions, and evaluate expressions with these symbols.

Form ordered pairs consisting of corresponding terms from the two patterns, and graph the ordered pairs on a coordinate plane. [5OA3] [MA2013] (5) 4: Recognize that in a multidigit number, a digit in one place represents 10 times as much as it represents in the place to its right and ^{1}/_{10} of what it represents in the place to its left. [5NBT1] [MA2013] (5) 5: Explain patterns in the number of zeros of the product when multiplying a number by powers of 10, and explain patterns in the placement of the decimal point when a decimal is multiplied or divided by a power of 10. Use wholenumber exponents to denote powers of 10. [5NBT2] [MA2013] (5) 6: Read, write, and compare decimals to thousandths. [5NBT3] [MA2013] (5) 7: Use place value understanding to round decimals to any place. [5NBT4] [MA2013] (5) 8: Fluently multiply multidigit whole numbers using the standard algorithm.

[5NBT6] [MA2013] (5) 10: Add, subtract, multiply, and divide decimals to hundredths, using concrete models or drawings and strategies based on place value, properties of operations, and/or the relationship between addition and subtraction; relate the strategy to a written method, and explain the reasoning used. [5NBT7] [MA2013] (5) 11: Add and subtract fractions with unlike denominators (including mixed numbers) by replacing given fractions with equivalent fractions in such a way as to produce an equivalent sum or difference of fractions with like denominators. [5NF1] [MA2013] (5) 12: Solve word problems involving addition and subtraction of fractions referring to the same whole, including cases of unlike denominators, e.g., by using visual fraction models or equations to represent the problem. Use benchmark fractions and number sense of fractions to estimate mentally, and assess the reasonableness of answers. [5NF2] [MA2013] (5) 13: Interpret a fraction as division of the numerator by the denominator (^{a}/_{b} = a ÷ b). Solve word problems involving division of whole numbers leading to answers in the form of fractions or mixed numbers, e.g., by using visual fraction models or equations to represent the problem. [5NF3] [MA2013] (5) 14: Apply and extend previous understandings of multiplication to multiply a fraction or whole number by a fraction.

[5NF6] [MA2013] (5) 17: Apply and extend previous understandings of division to divide unit fractions by whole numbers and whole numbers by unit fractions. (Students able to multiply fractions in general can develop strategies to divide fractions in general by reasoning about the relationship between multiplication and division. However, division of a fraction by a fraction is not a requirement at this grade.)
[5NF7] [MA2013] (5) 18: Convert among differentsized standard measurement units within a given measurement system (e.g., convert 5 cm to 0.05 m), and use these conversions in solving multistep, realworld problems. [5MD1] [MA2013] (5) 19: Make a line plot to display a data set of measurements in fractions of a unit (^{1}/_{2}, ^{1}/_{4}, ^{1}/_{8}).
Use operations on fractions for this grade to solve problems involving information presented in line plots. [5MD2] [MA2013] (5) 20: Recognize volume as an attribute of solid figures, and understand concepts of volume measurement. [5MD3] [MA2013] (5) 21: Measure volumes by counting unit cubes, using cubic cm, cubic in, cubic ft, and improvised units. [5MD4] [MA2013] (5) 22: Relate volume to the operations of multiplication and addition, and solve realworld and mathematical problems involving volume. [5MD5] [MA2013] (5) 23: Use a pair of perpendicular number lines, called axes, to define a coordinate system with the intersection of the lines (the origin) arranged to coincide with the 0 on each line and a given point in the plane located by using an ordered pair of numbers, called its coordinates. Understand that the first number indicates how far to travel from the origin in the direction of one axis, and the second number indicates how far to travel in the direction of the second axis, with the convention that the names of the two axes and the coordinates correspond (e.g., xaxis and xcoordinate, yaxis and ycoordinate). [5G1] [MA2013] (5) 24: Represent realworld and mathematical problems by graphing points in the first quadrant of the coordinate plane, and interpret coordinate values of points in the context of the situation. [5G2] [MA2013] (5) 25: Understand that attributes belonging to a category of twodimensional figures also belong to all subcategories of that category. [5G3] [MA2013] (5) 26: Classify twodimensional figures in a hierarchy based on properties. [5G4]

Title: What Would You Pack For a Trip To Outer Space?
Description:
Building your own private spaceship can be a lot of fun, but what travels with you can be just as important as what the outside looks like. Have you ever thought about what's on an astronaut's packing list?
Standard(s): [MA2013] (0) 2: Count forward beginning from a given number within the known sequence (instead of having to begin at 1). [KCC2] [MA2013] (0) 4: Understand the relationship between numbers and quantities; connect counting to cardinality. [KCC4] [MA2013] (0) 5: Count to answer "how many?" questions about as many as 20 things arranged in a line, a rectangular array, or a circle, or as many as 10 things in a scattered configuration; given a number from 120, count out that many objects. [KCC5] [MA2013] (6) 1: Understand the concept of a ratio, and use ratio language to describe a ratio relationship between two quantities. [6RP1]
