Purpose of the Lesson Plan: We call it zero waste, we make (Collecting Machine ) “TOTALS” with waste bottles. We have fun and learn by collecting in Stem Discovery Week.
ENGAGE: The Collector Machine, designed using waste bottles, was built to raise awareness among students about preventing global warming and reducing the use of plastic. In addition, we realized our engineering design by contributing to the mental development of students with concrete operations in mathematics. During the Stem discovery week, they learned the gathering process by having fun
The teacher shows a card with a plus (+) sign to the children and asks about the meaning of this sign. After the answers of the children, it is explained that the sign is a plus sign and it is used in incrementing operations. (The plus sign is used in addition in mathematics. Addition means the increase of numbers and objects.
Candles on the Cake
Today was Utku’s birthday. His mother made him a birthday cake. Utkunun friends would also come to celebrate. Utku wanted to go to the kitchen and help his mother. Utku: Mom asked if I could help you.
Mother: Can you bring the candles from the drawer? Utku said, opened the drawer. He took enough candles to fit in his hand. He handed the candles one by one to his mother. He said one … two … three … four … and five. His mother said: you’re turning six. So what are we going to do? Utku did not know what to do. I wonder how many candles were missing? Her mother told Utku the collection process by reading the poem called plus sign. So Utku realized that he had to add one more candle to the five candles. Then his friends, whom he had invited, came home. Utku started the fun by putting out the six candles on the cake. Then they all watched the cartoon called “Pırıl – Space’s Gathering Machine”. (https://youtu.be/XbN8tyUkXyk Collecting Machine ).
After the story, the answers are listened to by asking various questions about the story. Simple collections are made for children with various materials in the classroom such as legos and wooden blocks.
My name is a plus sign
I make additions
When the increment is done
Don’t forget me
The teacher hangs the card with a plus sign on the wall.
Performs simple addition with objects by repeating numbers.
Students are shown and permitted the material in question on their own.
Talk to the students about what to do with this material.
What if you wanted to design a collection machine for students? and they are asked to draw the protopy.
A collecting machine from waste materials is designed together with the students..

Talk about how we use collection in our daily life.
Simple coding work is done for the addition process.
The teacher tells the children “you are geniuses in mathematics, now we will play a game with you”.
With the dramatization method, she asks students to help an elderly aunt in their neighborhood while shopping for groceries. In the situation created, the students are asked to find the price, which is the sum of the two needs of the old aunt, who takes different needs from the market.
Before the students to design a collection machine; 3 large waste pet water bottles, one 1.5 liter waste pet water bottle and game balls are requested. Students are guided to make SUM by using these materials. Children learn by having fun by doing collecting operations with balls. For this purpose, using the wheel game (https://wordwall.net/resource/11812550)
application, the two numbers that appear respectively on the wheel are specified as the cost of the needs received at that moment. The teacher divides the class into two groups. Students are asked to collect using the previously designed material. Students who design a material similar to the material at https://youtu.be/qkRnZyx4Bqk perform the collection process with the help of this material.In this way, an activity based on learning by having fun is planned on how a mathematical operation is performed and its equivalent in social life.
Science: Students learn the addition and the (+) symbol, one of the four operations.
Technology: Students use the Wordwall application.
Engineering: Children design a collecting machine with waste materials
Mathematics: Students make simple addition using the material they have designed.
