To assess number comparison knowledge and to reinforce concepts learned.
Integrating dance and music to teach math. Comparing numbers.
Number cards 0-10 (1 set per pair)
Lesson modification: (2 sets of number cards per pair)
Students pair with one another and will share a set of number cards. Once the music starts, students will dance and sing together until the music stops. When the music stops, students will reach inside of their number card set container and will each take a number. Students will then identify their numbers and decide who has the greater number and who has the smaller number. If working with 2 sets of cards, students may explore the concept of equal numbers.
Differentiate with number cubes for students to compare quantities, as needed. Use higher numbers to enrich activities for students.
Observe number recognition and comparison.
Follow Up and Extension Ideas
Discuss and reflect, have students work as two pairs at a time, add numbers to find a sum for enrichment, student with a higher number jumps higher or dances for a longer time.
