Here is a terrific lesson plan on telling time designed for 2nd graders. Learners practice how to tell time to the nearest five minutes. They learn how many seconds are in a minute, a how many minutes are in an hour, and how many hours are in a day. All of this knowledge gets put to use by playing online games on the computer, putting together flip books that are about telling time, and doing some old fashioned drill and practice. A fabulous all-around lesson that covers this important topic quite well.
Fifth graders examine how to calculate elapsed time and examine a variety of schedules. They develop a time measurement chart, list ways their lives would be different without clocks, and list why having a schedule is helpful. Next they plan their own schedule for one afternoon, and complete a worksheet calculating elapsed time.
Telling time can confuse some students. This packet includes a straight forward explanation of how to tell time, a poem about telling time, two practice sheets, and an answer key. Note: The reading passage may be too difficult for 1st graders to read, use it as a teaching guide or read it for students.
Students make a sundial. In this time lesson, students determine the time of the day by creating a sundial. They check the time on the sundial, hourly, for one week. Afterward, they explore what happened to the shadows in reference to the clock rock locations. Students answer discussion questions.
Students review finding elapsed time by participating in this lesson. The students play a teacher-directed game called "Matho." "Matho" is played like Bingo, but the cards are filled with times written digitally, and the students must solve elapsed time problems to fill in their game card.
Yards or inches? Understanding measurements has a lot to do with units, so give scholars some scenarios and have them choose the appropriate unit. There are six labeled images here requiring weight, distance, length, and capacity. They choose from seven units of measurement for each: yard, gallon, mile, ounce, foot, pound, and inch. As you review this, discuss the absurdity of measuring with the wrong units (calculating a trans-Atlantic flight in inches, for example). Bring in some real items and challenge pupils to determine the best units to measure them.
Students investigate time. In this investigative lesson, students run through an obstacle course using standard timers. They record the time and apply this knowledge to problems in math. Students record their predictions, and graph changes. This lesson also refers to creating an obstacle course for a class robot, but is not required.
In these calculating speed, distance, and time worksheets, 6th graders review information, formulas, and examples, and solve word problems calculating average speeds, distance traveled, time taken, convert time measurements and speeds, and complete distance-time graphs. Students solve 51 problems.
An all-encompassing package provides video clips that demonstrate real-world activities that have to do with angles. After watching the Cyberchase cartoons, learners discuss why a "v" shape is used to measure a turn. A pair of vital worksheets and different-leveled assessments are provided through embedded links. You will appreciate this comprehensive instructional activity and the support it provides!
Challenge your second graders with a activity on units of measurement! Not only do they put their measurement skills to the test, but kids practice word problem strategies as well. The second part of the resource prompts students to supply the correct unit of measurement for different tasks, such as measuring the mass of a dog, or the capacity of a bucket.
This isn't an ordinary number sequencing activity; as scholars put these values in order they must pay close attention to the units attached. Each set of numbers has different units of measurement, so they must convert to order them from least to greatest. For example, a set of lengths are in meters, kilometers, and centimeters. Other units include money, volume, distance, and time. Encourage them to show work, possible on another sheet. There are 10 sets in all.
Tenth graders gain an understanding of various methods (e.g., rock sequences, fossil correlation, radiometric dating) used by scientists to estimate geologic time. Students read in the content area, use note-taking strategies and analyze the advantages and disadvantages of methods currently used to determine geologic time.
