2nd Grade Engage Module 6 Lesson 16 - With a Tessellation Project

MAPS Math Lesson Plan

Title: 2nd Grade Mod 6 Lesson 16 with a Tessellation ProjectAuthor: Christopher Hahn
Subject(s):  Math
Grade Level(s): 2nd Total Time: 60 minutes

Overview / Description: This lesson is about creating designs to develop spatial structuring.  It starts out with a brief video that relates directly to the goals.  Next, students create their own tessellation project.

Learning goals/objectives: 

After completing this activity, students should be able to . . .create a design using spatial structuring with no gaps and no overlaps.

Content Standards:2.G.2-Partition a rectangle into rows and columns of same-size squares and count to find the total number of them.

Math Practice Standards(Check all that apply.)

CCSS.MATH.PRACTICE.MP1 Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.

 CCSS.MATH.PRACTICE.MP2 Reason abstractly and quantitatively.  
 CCSS.MATH.PRACTICE.MP3 Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others.  
 CCSS.MATH.PRACTICE.MP4 Model with mathematics.  
 CCSS.MATH.PRACTICE.MP5 Use appropriate tools strategically.  X
 CCSS.MATH.PRACTICE.MP6 Attend to precision.  
 CCSS.MATH.PRACTICE.MP7 Look for and make use of structure.  X
 CCSS.MATH.PRACTICE.MP8 Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning.

Assessment: Our formative assessment will be looking at students' projects to see that they could create a design using spatial structuring with no gaps and no overlaps.

Wrap-Up/Closing: Students will share their creation that they made with their table mates.
