Magazines, oak tag 4”x6”, experience chart paper.
1. Students will cut pictures from magazines or newspapers of homes like theirs or houses they like . Paste onto oak tag.
2. Graph by having students categorize by type of structure. (house or apartment building). Count pictures in each category and ask which has more? which has less? Count all together. Graphing can be done by lining the pictures up on the floor, taping them to the blackboard or by using a pocket chart. 1:1 correspondence is reinforced by carefully aligning the pictures in the graph.
