Unit 8 Time, Shapes, and Fractions as Equal Parts of Shapes Grade 2 Math 


Description: Students finish Grade 2 by
describing and analyzing shapes in terms of their sides and angles. In Unit
7, students investigate, describe, and reason about the composition and
decomposition of shapes to form other shapes. Students will tell and write
time from the analog and digital clocks to the nearest five minutes.

Enduring Understandings: ·
Geometric figures can be
described. ·
Geometric figures are found in our
world. ·
Telling time is an essential life
skill. ·
The length of time can be measured
using standard units (seconds, minutes, hours, and days). ·
An analog clock can be used to
tell time to the nearest five minutes. ·
Fractional parts are equal shares
of a whole number, whole object, or a whole set. ·
The more equal sized pieces that
form a whole, the smaller the pieces (fraction) will be. 
Essential Questions: ·
How do we describe geometric figures? ·
Where can we find geometric figures in the world around us? ·
Is time important? Why? ·
How can we tell if an estimate is reasonable? ·
How do we show an equal part of something? ·
How are numbers used to show fractions? ·
How do use of fractions in everyday life? ·
How do we know how many fractional parts make a whole?
