Guide students through EXPLORING & DISCOVERING even and odd numbers in this quick, hands-on mini-lesson.
Give students 10 ones cubes.
Ask students to see if every cube has a partner or if one is left out.
Then they will be able to decide if it is even or odd.
Students will color even numbers one color on the number line and odd numbers another color.
The colors will show the number pattern and students will see that even numbers end in 2,4,6,8 and 0 and odd numbers end in 1,3,5,7 and 9.
