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.
Racing Toys and Rates of Change
Students determine the rates of speed for animated toys. For this math lesson, students calculate the rates of speed for toys and graph their rate of speed.
Explore how to make a number line and how to mark the numbers along the number line using fraction and decimal notation. Your scholars will compare and order fractions and decimals and find their appropriate position on the number line.
Comparing the Density of Iron
Students use scientific measuring tools to collect and use scientific data. They determine the density of four different objects by using their data to explain why objects have similar/different densities even though they are both made of iron.
Application of Completing the Square
The class applies their existing knowledge of perfect square quadratics to complete the square in a problem-solving context using dinner napkins. TI-Nspire calculator and application required.
Choosing Reasonable Answers
In this measurement worksheet, students determine which measuring tool would be the best choice to answer the problem. Helpful illustrations assist students in this task.
First graders explore, analyze, document and study weather and the water cycle. They observe the weather and begin a weather journal. Each student interacts with the concepts of evaporation, condensation and precipitation, clouds, temperature, measuring tools and the effects that weather has on the environment.
Black Bayou Lake Measures Up
Young scholars, in groups, estimate measurments and then select the tools needed and measure various items at Black Bayou Lake refuge.
Clips, Cards, Rocks and Rulers
First graders use standard and non-standard tools to measure classroom objects. Partners compare data and responds to a journal prompt that provides application to real-world situations.
The Living Book
Second graders select appropriate measurement tools by choosing appropriate tools to measure objects in the classroom They create a page of a class book by writing, editing, and revising one page of a book and use technology in the classroom by using software to create a class book.
Living with Ladybugs
Fourth graders investigate the units of measurement which describe the measures; perimeter, area and volume. Using physical materials, they measure attributes of a box and determine which measurement tools measure the attribute.
The Classroom Desk Graph
Second graders choose the appropriate measuring tool by discussing a tool to measure contents in desks. They then use a scale to weigh contents in desks. Next, they study standard units of measurement by writing down the weight in pounds and use technology in the classroom by graphing results on a measurement web site.
Self Portrait, What Nerve!
Young scholars conduct an experiment to determine the distance between touch receptor fields in parts of the right-hand side of the body. They enter data into the data table.
The Mathematics of Space and Place
Students investigate the measurements and geometry of the school grounds. They conduct inquiry while measuring the campus and some of the city blocks. Then students draw a map to scale and categorize property types using a pie graph.
Describing Variability of Organisms
Eighth graders use life-science content to help comprehend the difference between observations and predictions. After practicing observations and predictions in the pre-assessment, 8th graders will explore variability in a real sample of organisms.
Measurements Around the Classroom
Third graders practice measuring items by examining classroom objects. For this geometry lesson, 3rd graders utilize measuring tools to find the weight, time, length or temperature of specific classroom items. Students predict the length or measurement of the item before hand and compare it to the actual length afterwards.
The Box with the Greatest Volume
Learners use measurement tools to measure the nearest 16th of an inch. They connect fractions and their decimal equivalents and compare this with other decimals. Finally, the class uses algebraic concepts and formulas to solve problems.
How Tall Is It?
First graders practice measuring different items with different units of measurement. They move from station to station measuring items. They complete a worksheet as they go.
The Great Cover Up!
Students use non-standard measurement tools such as body parts, beans and counters to find the area of shapes drawn on the floor. They continue to determine the area of other objects in the classroom.
Students study measurement in relation to character dolls from books. They measure character dolls using cotton swabs, rulers, and other materials and record the various measurements. In groups, they create a graph depicting the measurements of each doll and compare them.
