Ihrig, Elizabeth A., Ed.
This volume is the twentieth in a series of 29 coordinated MINNEMAST units in mathematics and science for kindergarten and the primary grades. Intended for use by second-grade teachers, this unit guide provides a summary and overview of the unit, a list of materials needed, and descriptions of three groups of lessons and activities. The purposes and procedures for each activity are discussed. Examples of questions and discussion topics are given, and in several cases ditto masters, stories for reading aloud, and other instructional materials are included in the book. This unit begins with three computational games, and then provides a sequence of thirteen lessons aimed at building skill at addition and subtraction with large numbers. The final set of lessons is related to building a weather station. (SD)
