Lesson objective: Use objects and drawings to solve real-world addition and subtraction problems.

This lesson provides an opportunity for students to apply their knowledge and understanding of addition and subtraction to a real-life situation. Students are asked to use drawings and objects to solve addition as "put together" situations.

Key Concept students will use: 

  • Addition and subtraction can be used to solve real-world problems.

Skills students will use:

  • Counting up to 10 objects (Kindergarten, Unit 2)
  • Adding numbers to 10
  • Subtracting numbers to 10

Students engage in Mathematical Practice 4 (Model with mathematics) as they use drawings and objects to solve addition and subtraction problems.

Key vocabulary: 

  • addition
  • equation
  • subtraction
  • total

Special materials needed:

  • manipulatives, such as counters
