New! Represent Weight Measurement Quantities Using Diagrams
Learn how to use a diagram to represent measurements of weight in the third of five videos on the topic. A handy review of conversions begins the instructional activity, with an example of how to use a table to determine conversion amounts. The video then walks through solving a word problem and checking the work using different diagrams to assist thinking.
Jack and the Beanstalk: Measurement Ideas
Have fun with Jack and his beanstalk! Primary learners will practice skills at various activity centers, including: weight measurement, money, art, nonstandard length measurement, problem solving, music, reading, and writing. Every activity ties into the story.
Spring Scale Engineering
Learners explore how spring scales work and how they are used for weight measurement. In this engineering lesson students work in teams to design, build, and test their own spring scale device.
For this comparing weight measurement worksheet, students observe rows of objects and identify the heaviest ones. Students solve 2 problems.
Students experience a positive science experiment and study fundamental concepts of measurement.
New! Weight and Mass & Forces in Equilibrium
I would weigh less on the moon? Send me there, then! On the top of the first page, a cartoon image demonstrates the difference between Earth and the moon. It then goes on to describe weight and mass and provides five practice problems for force and mass. The second page introduces learners to forces in equilibrium. Five word problems follow. This is a fun and practical assignment to give your beginning physical scientists for reinforcement. The title of the page makes reference to a specific unit; simply white this out before photocopying if this is unfavorable to you.
New! Convert Measurements to Solve Weight Problems
How do you break down and solve a word problem that involves converting weight measurements? And how can that help decide how many strawberries are needed in fruit salad? That's the focus of this lesson. A handy review of metric units begins the learning, along with a discussion on pulling important information from a word problem and the common mistake of not taking unit size into account when deciding which weights are heavier. The core lesson walks step by step through solving a multi-step word problem. This is the third of five videos in the series.
Measure for Munchies
Fourth graders are introduced to the various types of measurements. Using a recipe, they practice measuring out the correct amount of ingredients while making the food. They also practice using a scale and following the directions on a recipe.
Estimate and explore the length and weight of classroom items using standard measurement and scales. Students will work in groups to determine appropriate measuring tools, weigh or measure items, and record their results on a data chart. They will also participate in a related online activity.
Students estimate and compare grapefruit weights. In this weight measurement and literacy lesson, students listen to the story Nate's Big Hair and the Grapefruit in There, then estimate the weight of a grapefruit after holding it. Students compare and record the weights of classroom items using a balance scale. Suggestions for grade level differentiation are given.
Measuring Larval Monarchs
Data collection and interpretation is a big part of math as well as science. Get kids into graphing with a hands-on lesson where butterflies are the main attraction. The class reviews everything they know about the monarch life cycle, migration, and the characteristics of monarch larvae. Each child measures a monarch caterpillar, records his findings, and then uses the data to create a class distribution chart. Multiplication, metric measurement, and the life cycle; sounds like a winning combination!
Walk the Plank
Students literally "walk the plank" and record the weight measurement. They use this to discover the concept of negative slope.
Educational apps reviews are available to members
Whether you are looking to change your weight, monitor your eating and exercise habits, or just looking to count calories, easily gain control of your personal fitness goals (or have your health or PE class do so) with a fun and user-friendly app.
Kindergartners measure the lengths of common classroom objects. They use standard and non-standard measures. The little ones should love this lesson because they get to use tape measures, rulers, yardsticks, scales, clocks, calendars, and thermometers. After listening to the book Twelve Snails to One Lizard, youngsters get into groups and practice using their tools of measurement. The lesson will require quite a bit of parental, teacher, or big buddy help in order for it to be a success.
U.S. Metric Units: Weight
In this measuring mass worksheet, students convert U.S. measurements of whole numbers and fractions in ounces, pounds and tons. Students solve nine problems.
A Common Measuring System
Young scholars review the units of measurement of the Metric system. They translate a standard recipe into one using metric units. One group prepares the recipe using standard measurements and another prepares it using Metric units. They compare the two.
Students conduct a class-wide survey collecting, compiling, and analyzing data about fitness, weight loss, and body image issues. They analyze the relationship between exercise and diet in weight control.
The Influence of Initiator Concentration on the Molecular Weight of Polystyrene
This in-depth organic chemistry lab walks learners through an investigation of the effect of initiator concentration on the resulting molecular weight of polystyrene. It is important that you use this lesson with experienced chemistry learners as they will synthesize polystyrene several times and calculate efflux time and viscosity. Ideally you would use this when teaching your class about polymerization.
Why Do We Need Measurement Tools?
Why do we need standard measurement? Youngsters will listen to How Big is a Foot? by Rolf Myller, compare family member footprints cut out of paper, and conclude why standard measurement is important. They will also participate in a hands-on investigation of a variety of common measuring tools.
Measuring with Our Foot: Lesson 2 of 7
Mini mathematicians measure the same distances as in a previous lesson plan using an outline cutout of their foot. This enables pupils to practice using nonstandard units and to compare the measurement totals using their feet and the teacher's foot. Two excellent worksheets are included in this plan.
