Students make scale drawings of their bodies. In this making scale drawings of their bodies lesson, students trace their bodies on butcher paper. Students sketch a half-sized version of themselves. Students record their measurements of the full size and half size body sketches. Students use ratios and proportions to see how close the half size sketch is to half size.
Explore the role of government in the economy market. Young scholars analyze the economic decision-making process and how it takes into consideration additional cost, benefits, and public awareness of what they are trying to accomplish. Vocabulary, mythconceptions, and an optional class activity are included.

Students utilize rulers, weights and clocks to measure a number of different objects over the course of several days, documenting their work with a camera.
Young scholars accurately measure the relationship between radiation dose and either survival or some genetic event such as mutation or recombination. They investigate the damage that was done to the DNA molecule as a result of exposure to radiation. Students investigate the effectiveness of sunscreens.
Each member of the class creates an inch ruler. Using their ruler, kids walk around the room measuring the objects you've specified. Discuss how items should be measured to the 1/16th of an inch, the smallest unit on their ruler. This might take some modeling to get things started!
Students inscribe regular polygons in a circle. In this inscribing regular polygons in a circle lesson plan, students inscribe triangles, circles, pentagons, squares, and other regular polygons. Students find the area and perimeter of the inscribed polygons. Students compare the area and perimeter of the polygons as the number of sides increase.
Students select and use appropriate operations, methods and tools to compute or estimate using whole numbers. They develop and use formulas for determining the circumference and area of circles. Students determine and describe the relatonship between pi, the diameter, the radius, and the circumference of a circle.
