This Ice Fishing is for the Birds lesson plan also includes:
Approach addition with young mathematicians in an engaging way through this penguin-inspired activity. In small groups, scholars think about times they have used addition in their real lives (there are some suggestions given), then watch you model addition using pictorial representation. They practice this skill at math stations, starting with a fun art project creating an ice fishing penguin. Use 10 fish to show an addition sentence, with some on top of the ice and others swimming. There are ideas for four stations, the last of which requires internet access to play an interactive addition game. There is some extensive preparation required for this lesson.
