The purpose of this lesson is to help students develop a strong understanding of composing and decomposing numbers. By engaging in hands-on activities, they will learn how numbers can be broken down into smaller parts or combined to form larger quantities.
Task 1: Roll the Dice allows students to practice counting and adding dots on dice, which helps them develop a visual understanding of how numbers can be composed by combining smaller quantities. It also reinforces their ability to decompose numbers by recognizing the individual dots on each die.
In Task 3: Hidden Birds, students use their understanding of addition and subtraction to determine the missing number of hidden birds. This task helps them develop problem-solving skills and strengthens their ability to apply number relationships in real-life scenarios.
