Eighth graders examine how to estimate and measure length, capacity, weight, and temperature to the assigned degree of accuracy. They participate in direct and guided instruction to determine the appropriate degrees of accuracy to use for measuring. They complete multiple choice questions to review the appropriate degrees to use.
Young scholars record their observations of animals that live in their garden in the springtime. In this springtime animals lesson plan, students track information about their garden each week and see what the temperature is, and what animals are present with different temperatures in their garden.
Students identify the different layers of the atmosphere and determine how they differ from each other. Students view a PowerPoint presentation about the layers of the earth's atmosphere. Students will determine the thickness of each layer and place the information in a spreadsheet.
First graders investigate how the sun warms the Earth and examine the rotation of the Earth and the sun. They create an illustration of the sun, examine a solar system model, and listen to the book "The Sun: Our Nearest Star." They also record the temperatures of cups of water, with one cup outside and one cup inside the classroom.
Students complete observation and measurement activities to explore temperature. In this temperature lesson, students each receive a thermometer to examine as the the teacher discuss Fahrenheit and Celsius scales. Students discuss the number pattern and review counting by twos and tens. Students observe temperatures and chart them. Students make a bar graph for their temperature readings.
In this vocabulary worksheet, students generate definitions for words using sentence context. Worksheet includes 8 vocabulary words from part one of the novel. After deciding on definitions based on context, students look up words in the dictionary and write the definitions.
Students examine how to use a thermometer to tell the temperature. In this temperature lesson, students study the use of thermometers to read both Fahrenheit and Celsius temperatures. They learn how to tell where the mercury has risen to and what the degrees symbol looks like.
Students complete activities to measure temperature. In this temperature lesson, students read Geoffrey Groundhog Predicts the Weather and make a KWL chart about predicting weather. Students discuss folklore about temperature and learn how to use a thermometer. Students work in small groups to complete a thermometer experiment, make a homemade thermometer, complete weather journal activities, and temperature conversions.
