Students develop mathematical skills using measurement in the form of weight. They also perform calculations to find cost and strengthen estimation skills while comparing the actual price. The context for the lesson is in the industry of farming.
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.
Kitchen Vocabulary Words
Working in groups of four, class members sort cards, labeled with kitchen equipment vocabulary words, into groups based on function, i.e., mixing tools, measurement tools, serving tools, baking pans, stove top pans, or preparation tools. Although designed for a Family and Consumer Science Class, the concept could be adapted to any class, especially ESL/ELL.
In the process of constructing their own "rulers" Students develop a sense of the size of a centimeter and meter. Students select the appropriate "ruler" for the tasks. Finally, 3rd graders calculate the perimeter of objects using centimeters or meters.
Describing Variability of Organisms
Eighth graders examine the differences between observations and predictions. In this organisms lesson plan students make predictions in the frequency of distribution in different environmental pressures.
Arcs and Central Angles of Circles
Tenth graders locate and draw arcs and central angles of circles. In this circles lesson, 10th graders use a measurement tool to find the measure of an angle between each number on the face of a clock. Students also measure the remaining angles to verify that they are the same measure as the given angle.
George Gorilla and Gallon Gorp
Students study units of measure like cups, pints, quarts and gallons. They work in groups to create their own mixtures of trail mix using the measuring cups. Then they make a gorilla puzzle using a gallon bottle.
Twice the Rice, or More?
Students review the metric and customary systems of measurement. In groups, they experiment with rice to discover the difference between the two systems. They record their observations on a worksheet and examine how capacity differs. To end the lesson, they complete an oral quiz.
ARcs and Central Angles of Circles
Tenth graders investigate circles. In this geometry lesson, 10th graders explore measures of central angles as related to a clock face. Students also investigate arc length.
Students explore the concept of measurement. In this measurement lesson, students discuss what specific measurement tools such as an odometer measure. Students recite a measurement poem. Students make a foldable with conversion units from standard to metric.
Magnitude of the Richter Scale
Students examine how a Richter scale operates. They create a booklet illustrating each rating on the scale. They discover how engineers use different measurement tools.
Fifth graders complete measurement problems where they use powers of ten, read metric measurement tools, estimate measurements, and more. In this measurement lesson plan, 5th graders complete 10 problems.
Third graders select appropriate units for measuring and solving problems in customary systems, identify equivalent measures within measurement system, and estimate, determine, record, and discuss weight using appropriate customary measuring tools and units.
Around and About
Fourth graders will be able to use a grid to calculate the perimeter and area of a square or rectangle and use measuring tools to measure and calculate the perimeter and area of a rectangle or square.
Students design their dream gardens and work together to build a class model. They use software to create a virtual model. They only use metric measurements.
What's My Ratio?
Students investigate ratios of various objects. In this ratios of various objects lesson, students draw pictures on graph paper and then dilate or shrink the image. Students determine the ratio of their pictures. Students trade their pictures with classmates to determine the ratios of their classmates pictures.
A Measure of Greatness
Students participate in a variety of Olympic themed activities in order to measure their results. In this measurement lesson, students participate in cotton ball shot put, paper plate discuss throw, and other events to have fun while practicing their measurement skills. Students use the measuring tool provided at each event station to measure their results, which they record on the provided recording sheet.
Table of Measures and Area
In this measurement and area worksheet, students complete a table by carefully estimating and then measuring the listed objects. They find 3 objects to measure, use the proper measuring tool, and complete table. They can complete a challenge activity.
How Do You Measure...
In this measurement math/language instructional activity, students see and study labeled picture, 5 in a vertical row. Students draw a line to match the object with the appropriate measuring tool.
How Do You Measure? Matching
In this matching activity, students match 10 measuring tools with the item that needs to be measured. They match a picture of a thermometer with a picture of a sick child or a picture of measuring spoons with sack of flour.
