Title: Lesson 3: Recycle, Recycle, Recycle
Description:

This lesson may be taught as part of the Unit Plan - Solutions to Lessen Human Impact on the EnvironmentIn this lesson, students will participate in creating a recycle drive for a classroom project. Students will create the notification for parents for the recycle drive to help collect items to be recycled. Students will decide by voting on which items they will recycle. Students will bring recyclable items to the classroom for the project. Recyclable materials will be sorted, weighed, and graphed to compare the different items.

This unit was created as part of the ALEX Interdisciplinary Resource Development Summit.

Title: Spin, Count, Write This Down! Numbers to 10
Description:

In this activity, students will match the number cards to the correct quantities represented on a ten frame spinner. Students will count each quantity aloud while finger pointing to the colored dots on the ten frame. Students will then write the given numerals from 0 to 10 correctly next to the ten frame on their ten frame spinner page.

This activity was created as a result of the ALEX Resource Development Summit.

Title: Count the Room Write Away- Numbers 0-10
Description:

In this learning activity, students will walk around the room with a partner searching for picture cards of various insects. Once they find one, students will count how many insects are pictured on each card, say the number aloud to their partner, and write that number next to the corresponding picture on their recording sheet. This activity can be used after a lesson on counting objects and writing numerals to check for mastery. 

This activity was created as a result of the Resource Development Summit.

Title: Counting Collections Practice
Description:

In this activity, the students will focus on the mathematical standard of counting and cardinality. Students will have opportunities to count orally, use hands-on manipulatives for counting, and other activities to build experiences in counting. Students practice counting skills, apply strategies, and ask and answer questions about counting.
