Title of Lesson: Addition
Grade: 1nd grade

Materials Needed:
15 cookies (or counters of any type)
2 baskets
10 apples
White board
Worksheet copies

State/System Standards:
1.OA.A.1-use addition and subtraction within 20 to solve word problems involving situations of
adding to, taking from, putting together, taking apart, and comparing, with unknowns in all
positions, e.g., by using objects, drawing, and equations with a symbol for the unknown number
to represent the problem.

The student will represent problems involving addition.
The student will solve problems involving addition.

The student will be able to define terms (total number, add, addition, answer) of addition
that help them solve the problem.
The student will be able to add simple addition problems correctly.

Instructional Procedures:
Begin class asking the students who likes cookies. (Hook)
Present them with a problem that we know how many boys and how many girls we have,
but we do not know the total number.
Let them brainstorm possible solutions to get the total number answer.
Teach how to get the total number using the apples and baskets.
Put 2 apples in each basket. Ask the students how many apples you have in each basket.
Put all the apples in one basket. Explain to the students that you just solved a problem
using addition. (When we add, we put two numbers together to get one number. We can
write that like this 2+2=4. This is the same problem we just completed but we are using
numbers in our problem.)
Do more examples and have students come forward to help you.
Allow them to write on the board as you and the class work with them to figure out the
Move back to the problem with the cookies. Write down the number of boys + the
number of girls = total number of students in class.
Count the number of students in the class to check your answer and review counting.

Why do we use addition?
How do we find the answer to an addition problem?
Allow each student to eat a cookie and complete the handout with 9 questions.
