Using open number lines to add plus 10 to a two digit number - Robin Taylor
1.NBT.5 Given a 2 digit number, mentally find 10 more or 10 less than the number without having to count. Explain the reasoning used.

The first strategy to get to mentally add 10 is using a 100's chart. This is the next strategy using the open number line to add 10 more. Eventually this will lead to mentally being able to do it.

Other strategies found on the video is using learnzillion videos, think alouds, and the gradual release model.

Physical and Chemical Changes in Matter-Rachael Phillips

5-4.7 This 10 minute clip is the beginning of a science lesson introducing chemical changes. On the video, a review of the previous day's content is included, an interactive class discussion, and the teacher model showing students how to analyze a situation to determine if the change in matter was physical or chemical.

Finding the Volume of a Rectangular Prism-Anthrown Roberts

6.G.2 This video clip is an introductory lesson on volume of rectangular prism. The lesson's focus is the help students get a clear understanding on what volume is before being introduce on how volume is found. With in the video students are asked to compare volume and surface area. Students are allowed to work individually, within their partner groups, and within a whole group setting. The teacher then provides for the students a real-world example to show the difference between volume and surface area.
