<ul><li><p>Array Scavenger Hunt Lesson Components Description Identification of the Class: Subject: Math </p><p>Population of Students: General Education, Speech, Special Education, Title 1. ESL Grade: 4th Number of Students: 15 </p><p>Virginia Standard of Learning: Math: Patterns, Functions, &amp; Algebra: 4.15 Math: Computation &amp; Estimation: 4.4 b,d </p><p>Rationale for Instruction: To reinforce concepts taught in previous lessons through having students practice finding examples of arrays in their environment and identifying correct equations for them. </p><p> Daily Objectives: Students will recognize arrays in their daily life. This will help them see how multiplication is relevant for them to know how to do and how it can actually make their lives easier. Students will gain practice in multiplying and recognizing factors (which can aid in future division skills). </p><p>Evaluation/Monitoring: Students will fill out a handout provided for them throughout the scavenger activity. Students will also be asked to answer pre-activity questions about arrays that are pre-chosen in the classroom. </p><p>Procedures: 1) Class will together discuss a few arrays a. Two in the room (light fixture is 2x3 and cubbies </p><p>are 1x 20) b. An example on the smartboard </p><p>i. Finding multiple versions of an array for a number. </p><p>2) After practice, students will receive handouts and instructions. </p><p>a. Students will be on a scavenger hunt to find the arrays mentioned in the handouts (they are all around in different areas of the school). </p><p>b. Students will work as partners. The partnerships will be pre-assigned. </p><p>c. Students will be instructed to use 4 voices in the hall because other classes will be trying to learn and we need to be respectful of them. </p><p>3) Students go and do the activity. 4) After students come back to class, they go over the </p><p>handout together as a whole class. </p></li><li><p>a. Students will have the opportunity to share answers (2-3 students per question) </p><p>5) Give a worksheet for the to continue practicing arrays. </p><p>Materials/Equipment/Preparation: Preparation: - Make sure the arrays are present in the places described </p><p>in the handout. - Review briefly prior to the activity examples of arrays in </p><p>the classroom - Review proper behavior in the hallway and expectations </p><p>for the activity. - Print handouts and the assignment after the activity </p><p>Materials: - Handouts - Smartboard - Pencils </p><p>Evaluation of Differentiation: - In order to try to meet the needs of the students in this class, students will be pre-assigned to partners. Partners will be chosen based on previous experience with seeing how well they work together and stay on task, trying to pair students who may need extra help with students who have a stronger grasp of the concepts (allowing them to take on a teacher role). </p></li><li><p>Name: ______________________________ Date: _____________ </p><p>Find an array in Woodbrook today! </p><p>Take a left from Ms. Jaspers Classroom.
