First graders explore time by creating a paper guide. In this time keeping instructional activity, 1st graders read the book The Time Song in their class and discuss the breakdown of time into minutes and seconds. Students utilize a single piece of construction paper to create a fold-able flap book which contains the amount of minutes within hours, hours within days, days within weeks, etc.
Upper graders work with peers to solve word problems related to time and independently solve word problems that involve calculating time. They will show their ability to solve and work through mathematical operations. A worksheet is provided in addition to a well-written teacher's guide.
Measuring angles is a mysterious task. What do those degrees mean? A clock is used to show what each angle looks like on a circle as the hands move around to mark time. The lesson explains that rays are just like the hands of a clock, and that the openings created by two rays in a circle form the angles we measure. A super way to teach a tricky concept! 
Review and use standard units of measure with your math class. They move from station to station estimating and measuring length, volume, weight, and area. At each station they estimate and measure, and then compute the difference between the two. They practice linear measurement estimation skills by throwing cotton balls and rolling toy cars.
Students analyze the effects of time zone differences on how we function as a global community, focusing particularly on the turn of the millennium as a way for students to calculate time zone differences.
Students work with Vernier real-time data collection probes. In this data collection lesson, students conduct time and distance experiments while collecting data and calculating averages. They use Vernier CBR probes and apply the appropriate formulas to investigate speed, acceleration, weight, and mass.
Young scholars simulate analyzing artifacts in archaeological lab by using real techniques that archaeologists use. Students practice measuring skills, drawing, writing, and brainstorming, and make inferences based on evidence.
In this black hole worksheet, students use the equation for time dilation to solve 8 problems including determining the time it takes to receive a GPS signal from space, the time delay for the GPS-Earth system, the distance a radio signal will travel and the ratio of dilation in space to dilation at earth's surface.
In this black holes instructional activity, students use a formula for time dilation which causes delays in events that occur near the black hole. They solve 6 problems using the equation.
Learners identify the characteristics of aerosols. Using remote sensing, they participate in an experiment in which they determine how the sun's radiation and elements in the atmosphere interact with one another. They also research the types of tools NASA uses to measure the particles in the atmosphere.
Here, learners review telling time using an analog clock. They use a clock to tell time, make a paper clock, and discuss the concept of elapsed time. However, the lesson is not always easy to follow, nor are the questions clear.
Students investigate how to tell time by observing the placement of objects in the sky. Researching on the Internet, they locate the time for sunrise and sunset, the time the full moon rises, and the difference between clock and solar time. Using digital cameras, students take hourly photos of an object on large pieces of paper and create shadow time posters.
First graders solve story problems using an analog clock. In this time story problems instructional activity, 1st graders complete word problems on elapsed time and discuss their solutions. 
Learn how to represent quantities of time using measurement scales in a diagram. Emphasizing essential concepts of time, the lesson covers the colloquial terms quarter after, half past, and quarter till and their corresponding times, as well as reviewing the number of minutes in an hour. A complex word problem is then presented. Starting by using a diagram to organize the pertinent information, learners are led carefully through solving the problem in more than one way.
Elementary schoolers examine the uses of rulers, scales, and measuring cups. They determine the criteria for the use of each tool and visit different areas of school to find items that can be measured with these tools. Everyone takes pictures of the items with a digital camera, and responds to an evaluation PowerPoint that highlights the pictures.
Learners demonstrate their understanding of equivalent measures. They work in a group and label various measuring tools for weight, length, capacity, and temperature. Plenty of links to important websites and teacher narrative are provided for this hands-on lesson plan.
Elementary schoolers develop time-telling skills, one skill at a time. They examine the connection between time on digital and analog (clock-face) clocks. An excellent instructional activity on teaching how to tell time!
Timers utilize the concept of elapsed time to solve equations for starting times and ending times in a real life schedule. They present their equations of elapsed time both orally and in written form. In addition, they construct and solve a variety of word problems involving elapsed time.
Be bold and never fearful! Tempt your scholars with an Anticipation Guide for Measure for Measure. Before reading Shakespeare’s problem play, class members label a series of statements as either true or false in their opinion. (It’s okay to deceive people if your motives are good. Having power gives you the right to exercise power.) After completing the drama, readers revisit the statements, adding the names of characters they imagine would believe each statement to be true. A detailed strategy guide for instructors is also included.
Continuing his conversation about data sets from the previous video, Sal introduces range, variance, and standard deviation as means of dispersion. Those who are advancing in algebra or who are beginning a statistics class will benefit from Sal's clear instruction.
