Math Lesson - Enrichment, Addition and Subtraction - less than 20, Grade 1

In the "Enrichment" lesson tailored for Grade 1 students, children will embark on an engaging journey into the world of Addition and Subtraction with numbers less than 20, under the unit titled Foundations in Operations Within 100. This lesson is designed to build a solid foundation in basic arithmetic operations that are crucial for their mathematical development.

One of the key activities, the "Properties of Addition Maze," will provide students with a fun yet challenging opportunity to explore and understand the fundamental properties of addition, such as commutativity (the idea that numbers can be added in any order and the result will be the same) and associativity (how numbers grouped together in addition do not affect the sum). Through this interactive maze, students will learn to navigate various addition problems, reinforcing their understanding in a playful manner.

The "Voting Worksheet" complements this by engaging students in a real-world application of addition and subtraction. They will tally votes, teaching them not only about the importance of numbers in decision-making processes but also encouraging critical thinking and the practical use of mathematics in everyday scenarios.
