 We'll learn what even and odd numbers are.
 We will also learn how to identify even and odd numbers.
 And we’ll explore how this knowledge can help us go on field trips, eat noodles, and even pair up our favorite shoes!

Discussion Questions

Before VideoHow can you count by 2s?ANSWER

Each number is 2 more than the number before it. 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12.

I can, 3 + 3 = 6.

3 + 6 = 9. No, I can write 4 + 5 = 9 or 5 + 4 = 9, but the groups can't be the same size.

I can, 8 + 8 = 16.

9 + 9 = 18 and 10 + 10 = 20. I can't make 19. One way to make 19 is 10 + 9.


After VideoHow can you tell if a group of objects has an even number of objects?ANSWER

You could pair them off. If there is an even number of objects, they will go into pairs with nothing left over.

You could pair them off. If there is an odd number of objects, there will be one object left over.

Even. I can make two equal groups.

Odd. When I put the objects into pairs, there is one left over.

9 + 9 = 18. 18 is even because it can be put into two equal groups.

Here are some even numbers: 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20. Do you see a pattern? The digits in the ones place repeat: 2, 4, 6, 8, 0. If the digit in the ones place is even, then the whole number is even. In 34, 4 is even so 34 is even. In 35, 5 is odd, so 35 is odd.
