Weekly Reader Connections

Teacher Guide: Unit 1

The Weekly Reader Connections feature on Kids' Place Houghton Mifflin Math provides your students with additional information about the topics that appear in the Curriculum Connection feature in their student books.

The article “The Changing Face of America” discusses results from the 2000 census, and includes a graph. Have students read the article on their own and then complete the Word Wise activity. The Word Wise Activity is two multiple-choice questions in which students choose the best word to complete a sentence.

The Data Hunt activity asks students to write three word problems for another student. Students can then trade questions with each other. Questions should be about the information in the article.
