This is a 2-3 day lesson series on Making Sense of Remainders. It's structured to focus on group work and making sense with some hands-on examples of division.
The package includes a powerpoint (serves as a barebones lesson plan and is editable), pre and post assessments (can be edited), group response/worksheets (also editable), Meanings of Remainders vocabulary scaffolding handout (based on Van D Walle's work), and 4 challenging gallery walk pages that prompt students to write their own story problems (these can be edited too).
Some of the story problems can be completed with the simple hands-on materials of:
- pieces of 126 inches of String (dividend)
- Scissors (dividing tool)
- Ruler (divisor size)
