3–6 multi-age, Year B – Unit 10

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

Students are provided opportunities to:

  • measure, compare and sequence events by halving and quartering blocks of time
  • represent fractional quantities of time and the multiplicative relationships
  • estimate and describe the size of angles using known angles as benchmarks such as right angles
  • estimate, measure and compare angles using degrees
  • solve problems involving duration, using 12- and 24-hour time.
