Today we are going to learn about odd and even numbers.
Listen to this song
Now use cubes or pasta to investigate odd and even numbers.
Have a some cubes/pasta eg 5.Can they be put in 2s? Why? why not? Repeat with 8 cubes/pasta, etc etc. The number that can be put in pairs are even and the ones that can't be put in pairs are odd. Practise with different number of cubes/pasta.
Now solve the worksheet.
We are going to continue our topic on materials and identify and classify the uses of everyday materials. This is a practical lesson. You can use the worksheet or draw your own table.
Go on a short walk or explore your house and garden, looking out for everyday materials being used in different ways. Record the uses in your table. Have a look at the PowerPoint if you need more support.
Challenge: use your observation to answer these questions:
- What different uses did you find?
- Is there any way we can group some similar uses together?
- Can you group similar uses of materials together?
