Title: Using Sign Language to Write FourDigit Numbers in Words
Description:
In my experience, children love to learn and experiment with sign language. In this lesson, children will learn numbers 1100 in sign language and will use that knowledge to sign four digit numbers to be written in words.
This lesson plan was created by exemplary Alabama Math Teachers through the AMSTI project.
Standard(s): [MA2015] (2) 8: Compare two threedigit numbers based on meanings of the hundreds, tens, and ones digits using >, =, and < symbols to record the results of comparisons. [2NBT4]
Subject: Mathematics (1  2)

Title: Souper Scooper
Description:
This handson, inquiry based lesson is an extension of the AMSTI Science Module, Solids and Liquids. Students use nonstandard units to measure beans in a soup mix. Students predict how many beans will be in a scoop. Students group beans by ones, tens and hundreds and complete a chart of their work.
This lesson plan was created by exemplary Alabama Math Teachers through the AMSTI project.
Standard(s): [MA2015] (2) 7: Read and write numbers to 1000 using baseten numerals, number names, and expanded form. [2NBT3]
Subject: Mathematics (1  2)

Title: Island Inequality Mat
Description:
The concepts of greater than, less than, and equal to are explored in this 2lesson unit where students create piles of food on two islands, and use a paper fish, whose mouth is open, pointing towards the greater amount, introducing students to the associated symbols
Standard(s): [MA2015] (1) 11: Compare two twodigit numbers based on meanings of the tens and ones digits, recording the results of comparisons with the symbols >, =, and <. [1NBT3]

Title: Further Investigating Greater Than, Less Than, and Equal To
Description:
Students build upon their understanding of greater than, less than, and equal to by observing quantity and making comparison using varied instructional materials. The fish cutout, with its mouth open, represents the greater than or less than symbol; the clam cutout represents the equal to symbol. Using fish lips as a transition point, children will apply their understanding of greater, less, and equal to the standard symbols as the teacher introduces symbolic notation at an developmentally appropriate level.
Standard(s): [MA2015] (4) 7: Read and write multidigit whole numbers using baseten numerals, number names, and expanded form. Compare two multidigit numbers based on meanings of the digits in each place, using >, =, and < symbols to record the results of comparisons. [4NBT2]
