Students complete a number of practical measuring investigations, with an emphasis on accuracy of measuring and communication of their findings. They examine how to measure by first becoming aware of the physical attributes of objects and therefore perceiving what is to be measured.
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. 
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.
First graders explore measurement. They measure by counting non-standard units. Students use a variety of non-standard units to predict and measure volume of various containers using rice.
Eighth graders study geological time and distance.  For this geology lesson students divide into groups, draw conclusions and test their idea. 
Learners build a realistic sense of geological time, seek clues of transition fossils and find them.  In this investigative lesson students complete several activities and worksheets on fossils. 
Learners practice taking measurements using non-standard units of measure. In this measurement lesson, students use non-traditional objects such as their hand, crayons or paperclips to measure various objects found in the classroom. This is a great hands-on approach to introducing measurement.
Students measure their "Humpty Dumptys" in different ways. They are introduced to standard units of measurement. They use a scale for weight, an inch rules for height, and a measuring tape for circumference. They then graph the measurements.
Students study the number 100.  In this measurement lesson students view a video and complete a lab activity on the number 100. 
Students practice their area and perimeter measurement. In this measurement lesson, students watch a video about perimeter and area. Students measure a gym for perimeter and area. Students write number sentences for the area and perimeter of the gym. Students use mini-cubes to model the area and transfer the cubes onto grid paper.
Students work with thermometers to complete problems about temperature. They investigate cooling patterns, how location affects temperature, and what happens when water having different temperature is mixed. They measure temperature in degrees Celsius and graph their observations using line graphs.
Students examine scientific inquiry.  In this time and temperature instructional activity students create a template to solve scientific problems and work through a science problem. 
Students examine parallax and angular measurements.  In this investigative lesson students calculate distances of objects and map their results.
Learners investigate how much wood is in a forest. In this forestry lesson, students calculate how much usable wood comes from the forest. They will read, Sizing Things Up from Trees + Me = Forestry, measure firewood piles, and create a model of the amount of lumber used to make one wood pile.
Students calculate elapsed time in a series of activities. In this calculating time lesson, students view a Cyberchase video that demonstrates how to calculate elapsed time. Activities include counting, subtracting and regrouping in base 60. Assessments and worksheets are provided for practice and progress monitoring.
Fifth graders study how to measure distance.  In this graphing motion lesson students complete a lab activity that shows them on the computer how to make graphs. 
Students develop a sense of geologic ("deep") time and the ways in which Earth scientists construct the geologic time scale. They study he major events that shaped Earth, including the origin and evolution of its lithosphere, atmosphere, and hydrosphere.
Third graders explore a strategy for finding elapsed time by using a number line. They identify what elapsed time means. Students investigate a concrete visual representation of time to compute elapsed time. They read, " The Grouchy Ladybug" to help with the everyday math.
