# Sketch Graphs I

Lesson 4 of 7

## Objective: SWBAT sketch graphs that have been described qualitatively.

## Big Idea: Use an engaging video to get kids to connect a verbal description with a concrete application and an abstract representation. It's a pretty cool video - check it out.

#### Warm-up

*10 min*

Each day, students complete a warm-up that usually consists of spiraling the previous day's material, in addition to older material. Warm-up problems also sometimes extend lessons that students have encountered before to more unfamiliar contexts.

For a video narrative about how I structure each lesson, and how the warm-up fits in, click Warm UP.

The homework file (Sketch graphs I) is a resource that generally includes 5-7 problems that include questions related to this lesson, as well as spiraled review. I also give the kids the answers to all the problems.
