Find Someone Who, Find Something That
The purpose of this lesson is for students to answer mathematical questions about their classmates and community.
Because students are often most comfortable asking “how many” questions, this lesson exposes students to many different kinds of mathematical questions that they can ask about their community with prompts like “Find 2 things that you can compare the length of.” The activities in this lesson will prepare students to develop a wide variety of their own mathematical questions in the next two lessons.
If students need additional support with the concepts in this lesson, refer back to Unit 4, Section B in the curriculum materials.
