On the Cover: Find the Mathematics... in the Garden! Melissa Donham, Hannah Anderson & Brandy Crowley Elementary PK-Kindergarten Provide each student with a five- or ten-frame that represents their garden. Allow each student to plant seeds (Unifix cubes) filling up their entire garden with one flower per box (one-to-one correspondence). Encourage students to compare their gardens by using these questions. The online spinners can be used to randomly select numbers and colors Spin for a color 1. Who has the most ___? 2. Who has the least ___? 3. Who didn't plant any ___? Spin for a number 1. Who has ___ seeds? 2. Who has more than ___ seeds? 3. Who has less than ___ seeds? Spin for a number and then a color 1. Who has ___ seeds that are ____? No spinner required 1. How many seeds do you have in all? 2. If you remove all the yellow seeds, how many seeds do you have now? Online Spinners for this activity: 1-5 Spinner https://bit.ly/1-5spinner 1-10 Spinner https://bit.ly/1-10spinner Color Spinner http://thewessens.net/ ClassroomApps/Main/spin. html?topic=utilities&id=4 You can input the colors of seeds (Unifix cubes) that you will be using. 1st - 2nd Grades Provide students with a blank 100s chart and centimeter cubes. Provide them with the following clues and let them figure out how to place their seeds (centimeter cubes) in their garden (blank 100s chart). Answers will vary providing the class with an opportunity to discuss different solutions. This is also a great opportunity to encourage productive struggle. Seed Clues: These clues can be modified based on students' needs. 1. Your garden has: Seed Color Number of Seeds Red 10 Blue 15 Yellow 9 Orange 3 Green 15 2. Each row and column in your garden has to have at least one seed. 3. Red seeds cannot be next to blue seeds. 4. Yellow seeds have to be next to orange seeds. 14 | Fall/Winter 2020 Texas Mathematics Teacherhttps://bit.ly/1-10spinner https://bit.ly/1-5spinner http://thewessens.net/ClassroomApps/Main/spin.html?topic=utilities&id=4 http://thewessens.net/ClassroomApps/Main/spin.html?topic=utilities&id=4 http://thewessens.net/ClassroomApps/Main/spin.html?topic=utilities&id=4
