Sample Lesson Plan and Resources

For an Ontario-based inquiry-based 60min Grade 4 Math lesson on the subject of subtraction:

**Generated Lesson Plan:**

Objective: Students will understand how to subtract two numbers.

Materials:-paper-pencils-whiteboard-markers

Duration: 60 minutes

Timeline:

- 5 minutes: Introduction (Teacher)- 10 minutes: Exploration (Group Activity)- 10 minutes: Discussion (Group Activity)- 10 minutes: Presentation (Teacher)- 10 minutes: Guided Practice (Group Activity)- 10 minutes: Independent Practice (Individual Activity)- 5 minutes: Conclusion (Teacher)

Introduction (5 minutes):

The teacher will introduce the lesson by asking the students what they already know about subtraction.

Exploration (10 minutes):

The teacher will divide the students into groups of 3-4 and provide each group with paper and pencils. The students will brainstorm different scenarios where subtraction can be used to solve a problem. Each group will also create their own subtraction story problem.

Discussion (10 minutes):

The teacher will ask each group to share their story problem and the group will discuss how they can use subtraction to solve their problem.

Presentation (10 minutes):

The teacher will write two equations on the whiteboard and use markers to demonstrate how to solve them. The students will observe the teacher’s process and ask questions if need be.

Guided Practice (10 minutes):

The teacher will divide the class into groups of 3-4 and provide each group with paper and pencils. Each group will be given a few equations to solve. The teacher will guide each group as they solve the equations.

Independent Practice (10 minutes):

The teacher will provide each student with paper and pencils and give them several equations to solve individually.

Conclusion (5 minutes):

The teacher will ask the students to summarize what they have learned and answer any questions the students have. The teacher will also review any remaining concepts.

**Quiz**

Quiz on Subtraction for Grade 4:

What is subtraction?

What is the difference between subtraction and addition?

Provide an example of a scenario where subtraction can be used to solve a problem.

Create your own subtraction story problem.

Solve the following equation: 15 - 7 = ?

Solve the following equation: 23 - 9 = ?

Solve the following equation: 52 - 18 = ?

Solve the following equation: 78 - 42 = ?

Can subtraction be used to find the total number of items in a group? Why or why not?

Why is it important to understand subtraction in everyday life?

Answers:

Subtraction is a mathematical operation that involves taking away a number from another number.

Addition involves adding numbers together to find the total, while subtraction involves taking numbers away to find the difference.

Example answer: Subtraction can be used to find the change when buying something.

Example answer: If Sally has 10 apples and gives 3 to her friend, how many apples does Sally have left?

Answer: 8

Answer: 14

Answer: 34

Answer: 36

No, subtraction cannot be used to find the total number of items in a group because it involves taking away numbers, not adding them together.

It is important to understand subtraction in everyday life because it helps with tasks such as budgeting, calculating change, and measuring differences.

**Classroom Management Tip**

To keep students engaged and on-task during the independent practice section, the teacher can implement a "silent signals" system. This involves having students hold up a specific signal or hand gesture if they need help, such as a thumbs-down sign, while also reminding them to remain silent to not disrupt their peers. This allows the teacher to quickly assess which students need assistance without interrupting the others who are still working. Additionally, the teacher can circulate the room during this time to provide individualized support and guidance to struggling students.
