4. Add Odd and Even Numbers Lessons


This lesson is to practice using odd and even numbers and is for kids age 7 and older or those who have learned to add and subtract and understand sets. Students with learning disabilities may need to go over this lesson many times.

The odd numbers in the lesson are 1, 3, 5, 7, 9.
The even numbers to use are 2, 4, 6, 8, 10.

The goal of the lessons is for students to learn that:

1. Adding even numbers together equals an even number.

2. Adding one even and one odd number equals an odd number.

On the chalk board in front of the class write out the sequence of odd numbers and below it even numbers as above. Make it very large.

Ask students to say the two sequences with you several times, so they can hear the numbers and start to memorize them in order.

Lesson plan for even numbers

To begin the kinesthetic activity have 10 students come to the front of the class. Ask them to arrange themselves (help them if needed) in 5 groups of 2 each.

Then ask 2 groups to stand together and have the class count to 4 and say 2 groups of even numbers make ? ? They should respond 4. Then remind them the answer is an even number.

Repeat the procedure with the remaining 3 groups of 2 and ask how many are now standing together ?? They should answer 6.

Finally ask the group of 4 and the group of 6 to come together and ask the same question ? The answer should be 10.

Lesson plan for adding an even and odd number

Have 9 students stand at the front of the class.

You'll be breaking them up in segments for the student to watch and repeat the counting with you.

Each time form a group of an even number of students, and separately a group with an odd number of student.

Now count up the total number of students in the 2 groups. It will be an odd number. Point this out to the students.
