Lesson 04 – November 8, 2012
RPS Territory (Let’s Investigate the Size of Space) Lesson Study
Journal question: Who won your game
and how do you know?
"Katerra won the game. I know because she had the most. Katerra had ten. DeKenzia had nine. Ashleigh had eight. I had six." Skylar
"In the game, Katerra had 10 spaces in the territory. DeKenzia had 9 spaces in her territory. Ashleigh had 7 spaces in her territory, last but least Skylar had 6 spaces in her territory. So Katerra won the game because she had the most territory. Even though I didn’t win I still had fun."Ashleigh
Today’s task is for you and your partner to determine who won 1st, 2nd, 3rd, & 4th place.
