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 learning exercise, students answer 16 questions about magnetic flux, resistance, voltage, current, and reluctance.
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 activity 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 plan, 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 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.
Learners 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. Learners learn a mnemonic to assist in remembering metric prefixes.
Ninth graders demonstrate application of area, surface, and volume in the world around us by applying formulas to a model of the classroom so they can determine the volume and surface area of the room.
Ninth graders demonstrate application of area, surface, and volume. They apply formulas to a model of the classroom so they can determine the volume and surface area of the classroom.
In this introduction to chemistry worksheet, students solve 50 problems and short answer questions on scientific method and unit conversions.
Students practice telling time by using an analog clock and its corresponding look in written notation. Using the correct numbers, students examine an analog clock and write the time.
Have your youngsters play on-line with this math activity. They use an on-line activity called "Clockwise" to help them practice telling time. Note: You have to have Java installed to load the computer game. 
Get your class out in the environment for hands on math activities. In this wetlands lesson, learners transplant native plants, calculate how much soil is needed, and perform math activities based on this experience. They then make predictions based on the data and record it in a chart.   
Students research an area with at least one dominant geographical feature. Then they display their findings in a realistic 3-dimensional presentation. Students also prepare ancillary material to support their project. Finally, they chart different geological events that have created coastlines, figure out the percentage of each type around the world and identify how scientists predict that global warming affects coastlines.
Third graders practice telling time. In this clocks lesson, 3rd graders use mini clocks to review counting by fives around the clock face. Students practice reading five minute intervals and adding one number.
Students identify and describe characteristics of minimalist sculpture. They work in groups to create an original minimalist sculpture, using careful written and mathematic documentation.
