This sequence of eight lessons from Illuminations provides an opportunity for students to represent patterns in different ways. Students solve problems; make, explain, and defend conjectures; make generalizations; and extend and clarify their knowledge. In Lesson 1 and 2 students recognize, sort, and identify rules for sorting. In Lesson 3 learners identify the core element or unit that is repeated. In Lesson 4 students create patterns and represent them using different forms: pattern blocks, actions, objects, pictures, letters and numbers. In Lesson 5 and 7 students use an Internet-based calculator that is linked with an interactive Hundreds Chart to create, extend, and record numerical patterns in different ways. In Lesson 6 students create patterns with movement and song. The last lesson, Lesson 8 is designed as a summative assessment of students understanding of patterns. (less)

Captain Pearl R. Nye: Life on the Ohio and Erie Canal captures the culture and music of the men, women, and children who worked and lived along the Ohio and Erie Canal. Nye, who was born and raised on a canal boat, never lost his love of the "Big Ditch." After the canal closed permanently in 1913, he devoted considerable time and energy to preserving its songs and stories. This presentation contains recordings of 75 songs, sung by Nye. The recordings were made by John, Alan, and Elizabeth Lomax, and Ivan Walton between June 1937 and September 1938. Lyrics for the recorded songs have been transcribed by Library staff and are available on the Web site as are song transcriptions, photographs, and personal letters Nye sent to the Library from July 1937 to October 1944.
