Phase:

After/Explain/Elaborate

Activity:

The teacher will remind students that we have many tools that we use in math and sometimes the tools are found online. The students will access the Interactive Hundreds Chart. The students will click on the orange color to the right. The teacher will choose a random number and ask students to click on the number on the hundreds chart. The teacher will have students find 10 more (blue), 10 less (red), 1 more (yellow) and 1 less (green) and color the square. To change colors, the students will click on the color to the right before clicking on the number.

The teacher will lead students in a discussion after the activity of different digital tools. During this discussion, the teacher will ask the students if the digital hundred chart was a good choice for the activity they just completed. The teacher can follow up by asking students what digital tools they might use for activities such as making a list, writing a story, or telling a friend about a book.

Assessment Strategies:

The teacher will assess the student’s ability to choose the correct numbers for the chart. The teacher will observe students as they participate in the class discussion. The teacher will observe students' problem-solving abilities as they connect to the digital tool.

Advanced Preparation:

The teacher needs to open the website for students or determine how they would like the students to navigate to the website. The teacher will need to determine which devices students will use.

Variation Tips (optional):

The teacher can have students take a screenshot of their work and share it in a digital portfolio.
