Introduction to prime numbers - 4th/5th grade math

In this lesson we have a chart for numbers 1-30, and I check whether each of them is divisible by 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9. The larger numbers didn't fit, but not to worry, our check is sufficient to find all the primes between 1 and 30: they are numbers that are only divisible by 1 and by themselves.

Lastly we check whether 79 and 87 are prime or composite numbers, based on divisibility.

This lesson is meant for 4th grade math. The first part of the lesson explains the terms factor, multiple, and divisible.
