This resource accompanies our Rethink 1st Grade Math Measurement & Data unit. It includes ideas for use, ways to support exceptional children, ways to extend learning, digital resources and tools, tips for supporting English Language Learners and students with visual and hearing impairments. There are also ideas for offline learning.
This unit was created by the Rethink Education Content Development Team. This course is aligned to the NC Standards for 2nd Grade Math for Measurement & Data.
For this activity, students read and interpret a bar graph in order to answer questions. There is a "Stretch Your Brain' section of the activity designed to challenge students.
Ck-12's Grade 2 Elementary Math is a series of videos and interactive videos designed to teach basic math concepts to 2nd graders. Concepts covered include Addition and Subtraction, Multiplication, Place Value, Decimals, Time, Fractions, Money, Measurement, and Geometry.
For this assessment task, students collect data from each other about their favoirte pets and create graphs and pictures to show their understanding of the data.
This short video and interactive assessment activity is designed to teach second graders about finding the amount of water with illustrations and calculations.
In this activity, students move the fishing hook up and down to catch the fish. When all of the fish have been caught, students see the fish represented in a picture graph and use the data to answer the "How Many" questions in order to move to the next level.
For this task, students work in pairs to plant bean plants, measure their growth and record their measurement. Students record their data on a line plot and discuss patterns in their line plot.
In this assessment task, students collect data on how other students get to school then represent the data on charts and graphs.
In this assessment task, students collect data on how other students get to school. Students also represent the data on charts and graphs.
Students will design a survey to explore their classmates' feelings and experiences with bullying. Once the class has participated in the survey, they will analyze the data, discussing implications and how they can improve/build classroom community.
Students collect data within their school about current social issues and create graphs to display and analyze the data. Students simultaneously read and write fables based on the prevalent social issues. Students then make 2D illustrations for their fables and practice reading their stories aloud with fluency. The culminating event is a Meet the Author showcase for parents to hear the stories and get autographs from the new authors.
Students will use the insects to create a pictograph. Then the students will answer questions based on the data from the pictograph. Students will then create their own question based on the pictograph.
Students plant sunflower seeds in plastic cups, and once germinated, expose them to varying light or soil moisture conditions. They measure growth of the seedlings every few days using non-standard measurement (inch cubes). After a few weeks, they compare the growth of plants exposed to the different conditions and make bar comparative graphs, which they analyze to draw conclusions about the needs of plants.
