Color by Classifying
Objective: Students will classify numbers.
Background Knowledge: Students should be familiar with various sets that numbers can be
classified in (natural, whole, integer, rational, irrational, real, not real).
Materials: Color by Classifying worksheet, blue, green, yellow, and black coloring utensils
Directions:
1.
Review the various sets to which numbers can be classified. Draw a graphic organizer
on the board to help students understand the relationships between the sets.
2.
Distribute Color by Classifying worksheets to the students. Explain to students that they
are to classify each of the numbers on the worksheet then color in the box using the key
at the bottom of the page. Tell students that there are some natural and whole numbers
on the worksheet even though that is not listed as a part of the key. Ask students to give
an example of a whole number. Then ask what color a whole number should be colored
on this worksheet. (Green).
3.
Explain that students will have time to work on this by themselves and with a partner.
Have students begin working on the activity by themselves for a designated amount of
time. Tell them to color in only the ones that they are sure they have classified
correctly. They may wish to write the color in the box in pencil before they meet with
their partner for any numbers they are unsure how to classify.
4.
Allow students to finish the activity working with a partner. When all boxes have been
colored in – a picture of a house and garage should appear. The picture is more evident
if one student holds up the picture and another looks at it from a distance across the
room.
5.
To conclude the activity, review with the class the difference between rational and
irrational numbers.
Activity:
1.
Review the sets to which numbers can be classified. Draw a graphic organizer on the
board.
2.
Distribute Color by Classifying worksheets to students and go over instructions.
3.
Have students begin working on the activity independently.
4.
Allow students to work with a partner to complete the activity.
5.
Come back together as a class to review the difference between rational and irrational
numbers.
