Button, Button

Youngsters count, classify, and estimate quantities using buttons after a read aloud of The Button Box by Margarette S. Reid. They discuss the difference between guessing and estimating. Based on an experiment, they predict the number of buttons a pair of students can hold. Each creates an individual button book to communicate results. Then the class constructs and analyzes a line plot. An integrated activity that adapts easily to a wide range of mastery levels.

Lesson Planet has given me more time to teach and plan thoughtful lessons rather than spending that time scouring the Internet for resources and just throwing study guides at students!
