Objective

SWBAT review the divisibility rules using a foldable.

Big Idea

A hot dog fold serves as a divisibility rules study guide.

Creating the Foldable

10 minutes

To begin the process of creating our Divisibility Rules Foldable, each student will receive a plain piece of white paper. I will demonstrate the folds and cuts as I explain the steps to students (see Creating a Foldable).

1. Students should fold the paper in half, the long way.  This is called the "hot dog" fold.
2. Students should fold the paper in half 3 times to create 8 tabs.
3. Students should unfold the paper back to the "hot dog" and cut along each of the creases.

Our goal is for it eventually to look like Divisibility Rules Foldable.

Designing the Foldable

25 minutes

We are creating our Divisibility Rules Foldable to serve as a study guide for students. Tomorrow we will have a quiz on Divisibility. I show students an example to give them an idea of the final product.

The front of each tab should read:

• Divisible by 2
• Divisible by 3
• Divisible by 4
• Divisible by 5
• Divisible by 6
• Divisible by 8
• Divisible by 9
• Divisible by 10

Inside each tab my students will write:

1. Definitions for each Divisibility Rule
