Seventh graders investigate standards of measurement and metric units using a game to show the importance of standards of measurements. In this measuring lesson plan, 7th graders are grouped together and each group represents a foreign country with measurements that are all different. Students are presented with challenges involving the different systems of measurements and they conclude the importance of having a standard of measurement.
Sixth graders plan a trip for a family of four choosing their travel plan by studying maps to decide upon a route and visiting Websites to get airline and travel schedules. They use ratios and proportions as well as converting fractions to decimals to solve problems.
In this ohmmeter activity, learners are given ten questions about circuits and and the resistance in those circuits. They explain how an ohmmeter is used and answer questions about different wire systems and their resistance.
Students create a ruler for the purpose of measurement using the standard and metric systems. The rulers are of different lengths and are compared to one another. Then students make conversions of different lengths using both systems of measurement.
Students identify the stages of the water cycle. They listen to the book "Magic School Bus: Wet All Over," examine the Build Your Own Water Cycle website, predict and measure the amount of water in a jar for a week, and read a short play about the water cycle.
In this geometry instructional activity, 10th graders build a swimming pool using math to calculate all of the different dimensions. The pool is rectangular in shape and is measured in yards or meters. Students must convert to different units to solve this problem.
In this SI units instructional activity, students read about the System International of measurement and answer questions about given measurements. They indicate if given measurements are equal and they convert from one unit of measurement to another.
Young scholars explore the concept of measurement as it relates to equivalencies. They complete simple conversions using visual models of measurement units, and record their answers in a two-column table.
In this magnetic circuits worksheet, students answer 16 questions about magnetic flux, resistance, voltage, current, and reluctance.
Students research the Olympic games to find the final times in selected events for 6-10 countries. They convert the times from minutes to seconds and find the mean, median and mode for the data related to each event.
In this math worksheet, students create the plans for building a swimming pool through calculating its surface area. Then they answer the 13 related questions.
The students compare themselves and their shadows to various objects big and small. Students use their data to set up proportions to solve.
Fifth graders explore the path of the water, carbon, and nitrogen cycle. They understand the general cycles of each and think through and discover the importance of chemical recycling on earth. Students incorporate the key concepts when observing, examining, and analyzing experiments in the classroom.
Students multiply fractions. In this fraction lesson plan students create conversions in recipes by multiplying fractions. Students read labels of ingredients and make adjustments to recipes according to how many servings they need to make.
The roots metro/meter and therm are the focus of a vocabulary building presentation that includes concise definitions, color-coded examples, and opportunities for guided and independent practice. Part of a series of roots and affixes presentations.
A highly relevant and great cross-curricular project! In teams, your class will plot a course from the East Coast to Sacramento, California passing through all of the state capital cities along the way. As part of the journey, teams will need to calculate miles traveled as well as the cost of gas, lodging, and food. The team that makes it with the least money spent wins.
Examine the use of non-standard and standard measurement when determining length! In this measurement lesson, 1st graders use non-standard units of measure to determine how far they jump. They color squares on graph paper to show the length of jumps determining that the smaller the boxes the greater the number needed to show the length of a jump. They determine the need for standard units of measure.
Students use the Internet to research vacation destinations. They determine the distance, and expenses for fuel, meals, and souvenirs. They create a graph displaying the total cost of the trip. They decide which group's vacation is the best value.
Students investigate earthquakes and describe the interactions inside the Earth that cause them to occur. Then they research the equipment and systems for detection and measurement of earthquakes. Students also build and engage in a working simulation of a seismograph.
Students measure an assortment of items using metric measurements. In this measurement lesson, students measure using length, mass, and volume units of measurement. They convert between units. Students learn a mnemonic to assist in remembering metric prefixes.
