The mini unit on the size of a million was completed in conjunction with Everyday Math lesson 5.8.  Students experienced a million through literature, multimedia internet resources, computation, and concrete examples.  Finally students completed a group assignment of a poster display that showed how much is a million in different terms.  The posters were displayed at a school math night.

Student Work
Students completed a personal reference problem sheet.  At the end of one day's lesson, they also responded through writing about what they learned in the unit.
Literature Connection
Students listened to the two works of literature and later used some of the information to complete the poster projects.
