Assessment of Comparing Games

Unit 4: Blending
Lesson 6 of 7

Objective: SWBAT see that adding the same two numbers results in the same total, regardless of context (i.e. cubes, cards, objects) and using a strategy find the total of two quantities up to 20.

Big Idea: Why do 3 cubes + 4 cubes = the same amount as 3 dots + 4 dots? Through the explanation and discussion of their addition strategies, students will explain why this is true.
