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.
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.
Second graders review measurements in inches and practice measuring different objects. As a class, they estimate various objects in their classroom and compare their estimation to the actual measurement. To end the lesson, they complete a journal with their measurements for future use.
Learners divide a poster board so everyone gets the same amount of area to decorate. Youngsters talk about the different ways to divide a rectangle. They measure their lines to make sure that each piece is equal and then decorate their given piece. A lesson that promotes a collaborative effort, as well!
Mark your class' mastery of measurement with this life-application math lesson. As they prepare for a class party, learners get relevant measuring experience! Scholars create an invitation that will fit into an envelope of a specific size, create appropriately-sized banners, and select the right size tablecloth. There are so many other aspects of party planning that will offer learning opportunities here. The links are also an excellent resource- check out the interactive clock!
