Our Make a Number with Addition lesson plan teaches students the different ways that numbers can be added to make the same number (for example, you can make 6 by adding 1 and 5 or 2 and 4). During this lesson, students are asked to participate in an activity in which they make the same number as many different ways as possible. Students are also asked to practice making numbers on their own, both with and without visual guides.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to create multiple addition sentences for a single number.
