Teachers Lesson Plans

Counting Circles: Grade K-3


Students will look at the bands of colour and try to estimate how many rings of colour there are. Afterwards as a group, they will design a plan to actually count them. They will try to find a pattern in the colours and decide whether each colour is equal in diameter.


Students will understand magnitude by counting forward and backward by various numbers and from various starting points.


Students will collect and organize categorical/discrete primary data and display the data using a chart.


Students will describe and extend the numeric and geometric patterns.
