Big Idea

Area
3.MD.7.b – Multiply side lengths to find areas of rectangles
with whole-number side lengths in the context of solving
real world and mathematical problems, and represent
whole-number products as rectangular areas in mathematical
reasoning.
-Record
-Write
Take a picture and then
student will describe the
picture by explain how to
find the area.
Adding & Subtracting
3.NBT.2 – Fluently add and subtract within 1000 using strategies
and algorithms based on place value, properties of operations,
and/or the relationship between addition and subtraction.
-Calculator
-Memorize
-Write
Practice adding 1000s
Quadrilaterals
3.G.1 – Understand that shapes in different categories may
share attributes. Recognize rhombus, rectangles and squares
as examples of quadrilaterals and draw examples of quadrilaterals
that do not belong.
-Paint
-Turtle Art
-Write
Memory
Use Paint to draw 3 quadrilaterals
and then whole group Write
the rules. Then use Turtle Art to
create a quadrilateral.
Equivalent Fractions
3.NF.3.b – Explain equivalence of fractions in special cases, and
compare fractions by reasoning about their size.
-Abacus
-Journal
Student are showing equivalent fractions
with the rods on Abacus.
Arrays
3.OA.3 – Use multiplication and division within 100 to solve word
problems in situations involving equal groups, arrays, and
measurement qualities
-Math manipulatives
-Record
-FotoToon
-Journal
Students are creating arrays, then have
a partner check their work.
Balanced Equations
3.OA.7 – Fluently multiply and divide within 100, using strategies
such as the relationship between multiplication and division (e.g.,
knowing that 8 x 5 = 40, one knows 40/5 = 8) or properties of operations.
By the end of Grade 3, know from memory all products of two one-digit
numbers.
-Turtle Art
-Journal
-Portfolio
Using Turtle Art to show 4x5=20 and
2x10=20 are balanced.
Attributes of Quadrilaterals
3.G.1 – Understand that shapes in different categories (i.e. rhombuses,
rectangles, and other) may share attributes (i.e. having 4 sides), and
that the shared attributes can define a larger category (i.e. quadrilaterals).
Recognize rhombuses, rectangles and squares as examples of quadrilaterals,
and draw examples of quadrilaterals that do not belong to any of these
subcategories.

angles each shape has.
Picture Graphs
3.MD.3 Draw a scaled picture graph and a scaled bar graph to represent a
data set with several categories. Solve one- and two-step “how many more”
and “how many less” problems using information presented in scaled bar graphs.
-Paint
-Write
Collect data and representing that
data with a picture graph.
Missing Measures
3.MD.8 - Solve real world & mathematical problems involving perimeters of
polygons, including finding the perimeter given in the side lengths, finding
an unknown side length and exhibiting rectangles with the same perimeter
and different areas or with the same area and different perimeters.

Finding Area
3.MD.6 - Measure areas by counting unit squares (square cm, square m,
square in, square ft, and improvised units)
-Turtle Art
-Journal
Using Turtle Art to show how area
can be determined.
Adding/Subtracting
3.NBT.2 - Fluently add and subtract within 1000 using strategies and
algorithms based on place value, properties of operations, and/ or the
relationship between addition and subtraction.

200 Steps (Perimeter)
3.MD.8 - Solve real world & mathematical problems involving perimeters
of polygons, including finding the perimeter given in the side lengths,
finding an unknown side length and exhibiting rectangles with the same
perimeter and different areas or with the same area and different perimeters.
