Title: Kindergarten Mathematics Module 5, Topic E
URL: https://www.engageny.org/resource/kindergarten-mathematics-module-5-topic-e
Description:

Module 5, Topic E’s Lesson 1 begins as students represent teen number decompositions and compositions by writing addition sentences. In Lesson 2, students make bonds with materials and hide one of the parts for their partner who must figure out what the hidden part is. The number bond with a hidden part is represented by the teacher as an addition equation with a missing addend, the hidden part (aligns to 1.OA.8). In Lesson 3, students compare teen numbers by counting and comparing the extra ones. For example, students decompose 12 into 10 and 2, and 16 into 10 and 6. They compare 2 ones and 6 ones to see that 16 is more than 12 using the structure of the 10 ones (MP.7). This is an application of the Kindergarten comparison standards (K.CC.6, K.CC.7), which move into the Grade 1 comparison standard (1.NBT.3). In Lesson 23, students reason about situations to determine if they are decomposing a teen number as 10 ones and some ones, or composing 10 ones and some ones to find a teen number. They analyze the number sentences that best represent each situation (K.NBT.1). Throughout the lesson, students draw the number of objects presented in the situation (K.CC.5).

Description:

In this activity, students are challenged to discover why Mrs. Pickersgill sewed the original Star-Spangled Banner so large. Students will measure and mark off the dimensions with strings and then create a "human" flag using as many students as needed.  Students can research information and photos of the Star-Spangled Banner at the following link included in the activity: https://amhistory.si.edu/starspangledbanner/
