## Envision Math Common Core Kindergarten Answers Key Topic 5 Classify and Count Data

**Essential Question:**

How can classifying data help answer questions?

**enVision STEM Project: Sorting Animals**

Directions Read the character speech bubbles to students. Find Out! Have students find out about animals that can be organized by color. Say: Talk to friends and relatives about animals. Talk about how an animal can be one color, but another of the same animal can be a different color. Journal: Make a Poster Have students make a poster. Have them choose one animal they learned about, and then draw a group of 6-10 animals. Ask them to color the animals using two different colors, and then write the numbers to tell how many of each color.

**Review What You Know**

**Directions** Have students: **1** draw a circle around the group with 10 bugs; **2** draw a circle around the group that has a number of birds that is less than 5; 3 draw a circle around the group that has a number of birds that is greater than 5; **4 – 6** count the frogs or bugs in each group, and then write the number to tell how many.

**Problem Solving**

**Performance Task**

**Directions** Read the problem aloud. Then have students use multiple problem-solving methods to solve the problem. Say: Alex says that if there was I fewer orange ball, then the category of orange balls would be equal in number to the category of balls that are NOT orange. Does his answer make sense? **5 Reasoning** Think about it. How many orange balls would there be if there were I fewer orange ball? Use numbers, tools, or draw a picture to show how many orange balls there would be. **6 Be Precise** Is the number of orange balls equal to the number of balls that are NOT orange? **7 Critique Reasoning** Use the sorting and counting of each category to explain your reasoning.

Answer:

Explanation:

1:

what alex says is wrong because oranges more than the not oranges

2:

alex says 1 fewer of oranges is equal to not oranges

he is not true

as 6 is greater than 5.
