This is a modification of the Helping With Math tasks, "Number Grid Puzzles," https://www.helpingwithmath.com/printables/worksheets/numbers/1nbt4-number-grid-puzzles01.htm. This activity was used with a tier 3 fourth grade intervention math group to help students count by tens in mid-decades and count forward and back by ones. I modified this activity by first having students make observations and note patterns in a hundreds chart; specifically encouraging students to note that counting on by ten ones increased the tens digit by one. Students then modeled this concept with base-ten blocks. Finally, students completed the hundreds chart number puzzles to reinforce this concept and wrote matching equations when a puzzle was solved. For example, "47 = 35 + 12."

30 Second PSA is designed to be a way to assess students on what was learned during their time in Health Class.  Students must put together a 30 second public service announcement about a topic covered in class and may work with another student to do so.  Topics are chosen by having a class discussion about what was covered over the course of the quarter/semester/etc.  Students can use any means they choose to demonstrate their knowledge (video, presentation, rap/poetry, skit, etc.) but it needs to be sussinct and to the point.

The goal of summarisation is to capture the essence of the text clearly and concisely. The ability to summarise has significant benefits for comprehending and ultimately retaining and recalling information. Teaching students to effectively summarise helps them learn to synthesise information, a higher-order thinking skill which includes analysing information and identifying key concepts. 5-4-3-2-1 can be used when first introducing the skill of summarising. The idea is to give students a chance to pick out some key ideas, tap into their prior knowledge, focus on information they find interesting and then pose a question that can reveal where their understanding is still uncertain.

This is a modification of the Illustrative Math lesson, "Ford and Logan add 45 + 36," https://www.illustrativemathematics.org/content-standards/tasks/2068. This lesson was used with a tier 3 fourth grade intervention math group to help students develop their understanding of place value and use of tens language when adding two digit numbers. I modified it to meet the students' needs by adding ways two other students (Sarah and Tammy) solved the problem: Sarah said, "I know 4 tens plus 3 tens is 7 tens; 5 ones plus 6 ones is eleven ones which is 1 ten and 1 one so 4 tens plus 3 tens plus 1 tens is 8 tens and the one left so the answer is 81." Tammy said, " 45 plus 30 is 75, plus 6 more is 81." Students analyzed and discussed all four methods and compared them to their own methods. I then had students practice using the tens and ones language (like Sarah) for some more addition problems without using place value blocks or models.

As you click on the organelles their function and definition pop up along with relevant animations. After completing the organelle tutorial the site offers an animal cell organelle game to check a student's understanding along with a quiz. 

This resource could be used as a precursor to direct instruction allowing student's to explore the organelles and their function prior to a formal teacher led lesson. This could also supplement students who may have been absent during the organelle lesson or are in need of further individualized instruction on the organelles. This tutorial could also be used as a culminating review for students to check their understanding of the organelles, their function, location and definition.
