Product Description

This unit is sure to ENGAGE your junior students and teach a ton of 2D and 3D measurement Concepts such as:

* Selecting appropriate Units of Measurement (metric system)

* Measuring perimeter (regular, irregular, missing sides)

* Measuring area (square, rectangle, parallelogram, triangles)

* Making 3D shapes with nets

* Surface Area (rectangular prism, triangular prism)

* Metric Conversions (length, volume and mass)

* Volume (units, formula)

* Mass (estimating)

MAKE into a STUDENT BOOKLET or print off one lesson at a time!

There are also 3 center packages:

* Problem Spin: Area (7 centers)

* Problem Spin: Volume (4 centers)

* I'm Done Now What Centers (exploring a variety of concepts)

Each lesson is 3 PART (Getting Started, Working On It, Problem of the Day and Reflect and Connect)

Lessons:

Lesson 1:

Getting Started: Brainstorming & Video, Units of Measurement

Investigation: Units of Measurement (length, mass and volume)

Working On It: Matching card game, matching items to appropriate measurement units.

Reflect & Connect: Estimating Measurements

Lesson 2:

Getting Started: Measurement practice (includes decimal measurements)

Perimeter video and concept chart.

Working On It: Find the perimeter (some sides missing, find side length given perimeter)

Reflect & Connect: House floor plan, find perimeter

Lesson 3:

Getting Started: Area video and concept chart (compare area and perimeter)

Measuring Area in square units.

Hands On: Estimating area of desk using sticky notes.

Area Anchor Chart

Working On It: Find the area of each part of the robot.

Problem: Area of Yard (subtracting area)

Lesson 4:

Getting Started: Discovering the formula: parallelograms

(cutting parallelograms and arranging into rectangles)

Area of parallelograms fill int he blank anchor chart

Working on It: Find the area of parallelograms

Problem: find the height of parallelogram, given the area.

Tickt Out: Find the correct expression, find area of parallelogram design.

Lesson 5:

Getting Started: Discovering the formula for area of triangles

Video, area of triangles
