Which Weighs More? Which Weighs Less?Lesson Planet
Pre-K - 1st CCSS: Designed
Expand the the comparative language of young mathematicians with a hand-on weight measurement activity. Working independently or in pairs, children compare the weight of large wooden blocks to various other classroom objects, recording...
Application Problems Involving Units of WeightLesson Planet
7 mins 5th - 8th CCSS: Adaptable
Apply mathematics skills with this word problem involving units of weight. Sal assesses the given data, converts tons into pounds, divides, and simplifies his answer. This concept is very well explained and would fit nicely into a full...
Study Jams! Units of MeasurementLesson Planet
4 mins 5th - 8th CCSS: Adaptable
As Mia and RJ discuss measurement, your class is introduced to the customary and metric systems for measuring mass, capacity, weight, and length. Temperature scales are also introduced. This resource can help set the foundation for later...
Customary Units of Capacity and WeightLesson Planet
3rd - 6th CCSS: Adaptable
Six straightforward word problems require learners to use customary units of capacity (pints, quarts, cups, gallons) on this assignment. In order to answer each question, they must write an explanation in the form of a mathematical...
Measuring Instruments for Physics-SPRING BALANCELesson Planet
3 mins 6th - 12th
A step-by-step demonstration of how to use a spring scale is presented to the viewers by a gentle female narrator. For your flipped classroom, you can have learners view this at home and then come to class to practice measuring weight...
Inertial Mass, Weight, and Newton's Second Law of MotionLesson Planet
9th - 12th
The stage is set for you to guide future physicists through three forceful activities about motion. In the first, learners experiment with rolling carts to discover how objects interact. In the second, they inspect images of an object in...
Weight and Mass & Forces in EquilibriumLesson Planet
8th - 12th
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...
Compare and Convert Customary Units of WeightLesson Planet
6 mins 3rd - 5th CCSS: Designed
Using the customary units for weight (ounces, pounds, and tones), this video shows how to convert between the two. After reviewing the basic idea of what an ounce, pound, and ton is, the video shows two examples using conversion...
World's Heaviest WeightLesson Planet
6 mins 9th - 12th CCSS: Adaptable
Measuring large forces is a challenging endeavor. An installment in the Veritasium playlist explains the process of calibrating a force transducer on a weight measure of 1,000,000 pounds of force, an important application in jet production.
What Unit of Measurement?Lesson Planet
3rd - 4th CCSS: Designed
If you're measuring a bicycle, would you use inches, feet, or yards? What about when you measure a shoe, or a flagpole? Explore measurement with this worksheet, which prompts third graders to use their critical-thinking skills. Three...
Problems with MeasuresLesson Planet
2nd - 3rd CCSS: Designed
Yards or inches? Understanding measurements has a lot to do with units, so give scholars some scenarios and have them choose the appropriate unit. There are six labeled images here requiring weight, distance, length, and capacity. They...
Real-life Problems, Money, and WeightLesson Planet
3rd - 5th CCSS: Designed
Solve five word problems involving money and weight. After studying the example at the top, which demonstrates how to write out the equation in a word problem, fourth graders work on adding large numbers in money and measurement. Here is...
Back To the Basics: MeasurementLesson Planet
4th - 5th CCSS: Adaptable
Lead the class in a review of the basic concepts and procedures involved in measuring length, weight, and volume. After whole group instruction, small groups and individuals practice measuring by completing a variety of fun activities...
Longer and Heavier? Shorter and Heavier?Lesson Planet
K CCSS: Designed
For many young children it seems obvious that longer objects are heavier than shorter objects. This assumption is put to the test as the class investigates the relationship between length and weight in a whole-group activity. Using a...
Determination of the Weight of a Meter Rule Using the Principle of MomentLesson Planet
9th - 12th CCSS: Adaptable
Varignon's Theorem, or the Principle of Moment, relates Euclidean geometry to physics. The seventh lesson in an 11-part series challenges scholars to figure out the center of gravity, then determine the weight of a meter rule using the...
