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.
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.
Young scholars 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.
Eighth graders conduct Internet research on geometry in our everyday lives. They answer questions about well-known structures, and write a paragraph demonstrating their knowledge of geometric shapes and measurements.
Students measure an assortment of items using metric measurements. In this measurement instructional activity, students measure using length, mass, and volume units of measurement. They convert between units. Students 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 instructional activity, students solve 50 problems and short answer questions on scientific method and unit conversions.
Get your class out in the environment for hands on math activities. In this wetlands instructional activity, 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 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. 
Students identify and describe characteristics of minimalist sculpture. They work in groups to create an original minimalist sculpture, using careful written and mathematic documentation.
Students brainstorm items they have that use memory and view Statistical Process Control PowerPoint presentation. They complete Statistical Process Control Simulation/experiment then find the average, range and standard deviation in their results.
Young scholars 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.
Seventh graders study polygons and tangrams. They experiment with various polygons and create their own tangrams. They create a PowerPoint presentation to illustrate and explain polygons, symmetry, area and perimeter.
Students reconstruct and make drawings of vessels in the same manner as an archaeologist. In this archaeologist lesson plan, students each get a piece of a broken pot and they have to work together to put it back together. Once it is glued, they have to write a description and measure the pot.
Students acquire a working knowledge of the geographical concepts: absolute location, relative location, longitude and latitude. They analyze primary sources that shows the physical and human characteristics of the places along the 1899 Harriman Alaska Expedition's route. Students generate route maps using sequencing skills.
Students investigate Australia's Great Barrier Reef and create oil paintings of it. After their research, they apply various painting techniques to depict air bubbles, sun's radiation, and color blending. For older students, the paintings can be a component of a more detailed research project.
