Star
Day 

Math Lesson
for Star Day
Objective:
The students
will count by 5's.

Materials

Procedure

Show the students a picture of a
star shape. Discuss how the star has 5 points.

Pass out the star shapes (decide
ahead of time how many stars each child receives  younger children may need
2 stars to practice counting by 10's. Older students may be given more
stars to practice counting higher by 5's, or even doing some multiplication
problems.)

Have the students write the
numbers 15 on each of their star points (each point should be labeled with
one number). If they have more than one star, they should label each
of them 15, except if the decision has been made to work with 10's.
If so, have the students label their two stars with the numbers 110.

The students will now be able to
practice counting by 5's or 10's. How many star points do 3 students
have? How many are there in the whole class? With older students
lessons may be done with multiplication. To find the answer of how
many points three stars have, use the problem 3 x 5 = 15.

Other
Lesson Ideas

Make color patterns with the
small foil star stickers.

Have a geometry lesson on how
two triangles can be used to make a 6 pointed star.

Challenge the students to design
a game in which they use a large star with each point labeled with a number
15 and a dice.

Fill a piece of paper with hand
drawn stars, or star stickers. Have the students estimate how many
stars are on the paper. Then count the stars and see how close the
estimates are!
