How to implement science into each of the different mathematical concepts. Science and math go together beautifully. We make every attempt to connect our lessons through themes. We will read Eric Carles, The Very Hungry Caterpillar, to introduce our theme and to get the children excited and engaged about the lesson. Ordering involves comparing more than two things or more than two groups (Charlesworth & Lind, 1990). Ordering can be incorporated in science by learning the life cycles of insects. It’s spring time and we will discuss the life cycle of butterflies.
The children should be able to tell us what happens in the life cycle of a butterfly in sequential order by saying some ordinal words first, second, next and last. Seriation is much like ordering, it will be learned by working with nesting boxes.
These boxes are labeled with pictures of the butterfly life cycle and the children stack the smaller boxes on top of small boxes to show the correct order.
The students should be able to take a large box and use it as the foundation, then stack a medium size box on top of the large box. The last box would be a small size box stacked on top of the medium sized box. We will search for patterns when we take our nature walk. We will collect items while we walk, sort them when we return and the students will be able to count them and make an ABAB pattern with them. Measuring our shadows.
We will stand in place and the student will outline our shadow with sidewalk chalk and we will measure to see how tall our shadows are. We will discuss the position we should stand in and where the sun should be for our shadow to be in front of or behind us to implement science in this lesson. We will discuss that the groundhog seen his shadow and this means we should have 6 more weeks of winter even though it is supposed to be spring. We will check the weather outside and graph how many days we will have to wear jackets.
We will explore a thermometer and I will introduce the word mercury to implement science into this lesson. We will discuss the seasons and how the weather changes with each one. We will connect that you have more mercury or red stuff during hot weather and less mercury or red stuff during cold weather.
