Reflection: Complex Tasks Collecting Data- Counting Pictures Day 2 Review - Section 2: Presentation of Lesson


The whole group lesson for today was a challenging task for my students.  They were counting shapes and graphing them, but it was challenging because of the way the shapes were laid out.  We have already talked about how shapes can be different sizes and orientations, but the fact that their were large shapes with smaller ones inside really tripped some of the students up.  What we ended up doing was not just marking the shapes off as we counted by tracing them in different colors, so the students could clearly see where they were.

Collecting Data- Counting Pictures Day 2 Review

Unit 6: Graphing and Measurement
Lesson 3 of 18

Objective: Students will be able to sort objects, record the data on a graph, and talk about their graph using the words more, less and equal.

Big Idea: By sorting objects and pictures and representing them on a graph, students learn to create an abstract representation of a collection of objects that can be used to answer quantitative and comparison questions about the collection.
