This is my favorite lesson of the school year. You'll all be smiling!
Classifying Rational Numbers is a complete lesson unit from Introduction to Assessment. I've even thrown in a couple of follow-up, higher-order thinking warm-ups to be used afterwards.
I've included the lesson plans that explain each phase of the unit and also describes the activity that I do with my students to introduce the number systems, an easy way to remember and differentiate between them.
This is most specific for 6th graders who are learning Whole, Integer, and Rational Numbers.
I take 3 45 minute class periods to complete the unit.
Please feel free to let me know if you have questions.
