Young mathematicians explore data collection and mathematical problem solving. They will work in cooperative groups to determine the height of a tree by measuring several predetermined distances on the ground. They will use the data collected to set up mathematical ratio problems and calculate the height of the tree.
Sixth graders explore measuring lung capacity. In this respiratory system lesson, 6th graders conduct an experiment on their fellow class mates that measures how much air capacity their lungs have. Students record and graph the data collected.
Students examine concept of time, and explore difference between analog and digital clocks; students make art project to represent time and create a time-story problem and solution.
First graders listen to and discuss the book, The Time Song. In this math lesson, 1st graders discover what they can do in a second, a minute, and a hour. Additionally students create a flap book to display time equivalencies.
Weight, time, length, cost, and mass are all things we can measure. Learners are introduced to the concepts they'll need to know before embarking on any measurement adventure. They are introduced to each type of measurement and types of measurement tools. Then they are asked to estimate measurement, examine measurement tools, and define related vocabulary. 
Students participate in five teacher-led, whole class activities that explore sequences of time and the concept of faster and slower. They sequence school day events, create a book of their daily schedule, put the days of the week in correct order, listen to the story of the tortoise and the hare, and examine pictures of people of varying ages.
Sixth graders create a human timeline. In this B.C. and A.D. time instructional activity, 6th graders examine the relationships among events on timelines as they use date cards to create a human timeline. Students also conduct research to design their own timelines regarding given time periods.
In this time measurement worksheet, students find the time before and after one hour of the given time. The time is displayed in the digital clock form. There are ten fill-in's to complete.
Challenge your class's time-telling skills with fifteen analog clocks, all with blank faces. They write the hands in the correct places, all with times to the nearest five minutes. An easy way to extend this assignment would be a group activity - have kids come up with their own times, and help their partners write the hands.
Students measure a variety of objects using the appropriate measuring tool. In this measurement lesson, students explain the importance of accuracy and precision in collecting data. They discuss the difference between the two.
Students work in groups to design a device that measures out exactly three minutes. They choose from a variety of common classroom items, design, test and present their solution and then reflect on the pros and cons of their invention.
Four fabulous worksheets are included in this resource, all having to do with the measurement of angles. On the first, anglers will use a protractor to determine the degrees of 10 different angles. An arc is drawn on each. On the second, six triangles are depicted for which learners measure various angles. Finally, six 360-degree circles are printed, and geometers are instructed to divide it into a designated number of sections using a protractor. A nifty handout follows that provides useful information about angles and the use of a protractor.
Learners investigate the effects of time and distance for the creation of a successful railroad.  For this railroad lesson, students recognize the railroad's need for an exact time schedule was the cause for the creation of time zones.  Learners answer questions about the need for exact time. Students create a water clock.
Young mathematicians are shown a ruler, yardstick, tape measure and scale. They practice measuring length, width, height, and weight. They are then shown a thermometer, and discuss what a thermometer is used for. Everyone is shown how to read the temperature on the thermometer.
Students explore measuring tools by calculating heights and lengths of random objects. In this distance measurement activity, students utilize the Internet service MapQuest to measure the distance between their current towns and many other popular destinations. Students discuss the massive heights of tsunamis and utilize many distance related vocabulary terms.
In this fiction books worksheet, students complete seven multiple choice questions about the book, "Extreme Measures." These questions contain concepts such as choosing the correct author, who published the book, when it was on the New York Times best seller list, and popularity of other books at the same time.
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.
Students work with measurements of length, area, and volume capacity of a liquid. They watch a teacher demonstration of both English and metric units before they estimate and take actual measurements of assigned items a three different work stations.
Students take pleasure in learning to measure. In this early childhood math lesson plan, students develop observation, measurement, time and vocabulary skills as they measure their shadows at different times of the day.
Students analyze timber and use measuring techniques to figure board feet.  In this investigative lesson students learn why accurate measurements are important and how to convert standing timber to board feet.
