3–6 multi-age, Year A – Unit 10

This 2-week, Year A unit develops the big idea that angles are the primary structural component of many shapes.

Students are provided opportunities to:

  • identify angles as measures of turn
  • identify and name the parts of an angle
  • estimate and describe the size of angles using known angles as benchmarks
  • read and represent analog time using minutes and hours and solve problems involving quarter hours and half hours
  • estimate, measure and compare angles using degrees (Stage 3)
  • compare 12- and 24-hour time systems and convert between them (Stage 3).
