This task is a think-pair-share activity designed for fifth graders learning about properties of numbers, specifically odd numbers. Students are given a statement about odd numbers and must determine whether they agree or disagree with the statement. A template is given for students to make a claim and provide an argument to back the claim. Students must then consult with a partner and compare arguments. Students will use knowledge of the properties of both odd and even numbers.
