Students will compare and contrast the math contents on each slide to determine which items go together and which one does not belong. They will be using a gifted strategy, comparing and contrasting, that is valuable for all students to acquire and use. Math tools that will be used for analyzing are: ten frames, rekenreks, countable objects, tally marks, counting cubes, and place value tens rods and ones units. Each slide will have 3 or 4 math representations that students are comparing and contrasting. Students will develop a logical argument that they can defend with evidence when stating their claim. They will justify why they made the claim that they did. This learning activity can be done with the whole group, during a small guided math group, as a Tier Intervention, independently, with a math partner, or in a math center.
The math cards can be displayed with a projection system for everyone to see or as large hand held cards. The math cards also work well if you print 2 on a page and make smaller flash cards for centers.
I hope you enjoy using this math task with your students. Thank you for supporting Herron's Happy Hoppers!
