# Odd or Even - Lesson for Grade 2, Chapter - Equal Groups

In the "Odd or Even" lesson, designed for Grade 2 students within the "Equal Groups" chapter of the "Applications in Operations Within 1000" unit, learners embark on an engaging journey to understand the concept of odd and even numbers. Through a series of immersive activities such as the Fishy Numbers Worksheet, Even and Odd Numbers Worksheet, Counting Birds Worksheet, and the Make it Even: St. Valentine's Day Worksheet, students are introduced to the foundational principles of classifying numbers based on their divisibility by two.

This lesson is pivotal for multiple reasons. Firstly, it lays the groundwork for mathematical operations, enabling students to perform addition, subtraction, and even early multiplication with a clear understanding of number properties. Moreover, by classifying numbers as odd or even, students enhance their problem-solving skills and begin to see patterns within numbers, which is crucial for later mathematical concepts. The interactive nature of the worksheets ensures that students not only grasp these concepts but also apply them in various contexts, making learning both fun and applicable to real-life scenarios. Understanding odd and even numbers is a stepping stone towards mastering more complex mathematical operations and developing logical thinking skills.

• ### Activity 1 / Fishy Numbers Worksheet

Use this worksheet to explain to your kids the concept of even and odd numbers. When there is an even number of objects in a group, all the objects can be paired in twos. However, when the number of objects falls on an odd number, all the objects cannot be paired, and one object will be left with no pair. In this printout, your students’ task is simple; find and check all the groups with an odd number of fish. Help your little ones count the fish in each group and figure out which ones are odd.

• ### Activity 2 / Even and Odd Numbers Worksheet

Is it even or odd? Your child review this tricky concept using an easy-to-understand graphic that helps your little mathematician understand what makes a number even or odd!
