Grade 8: Measurement
We offer 58 Excellent Measurement Activities and Worksheets for Grade 8 students!
In Grade 8, students expand their understanding of measurement. Although students in 8th grade may have developed an initial understanding of area and volume, they need further experiences in measurement to deepen their understanding of finding surface area and volume of three-dimensional objects. We offer a step-by-step approach to help teachers explain measurement concepts to their students.
We share a wealth of classroom-tested worksheets and activities that help students understand how to use the Pythagorean Theorem, proportional relationships in similar two- and three-dimensional figures, and recognize the resulting effect on perimeter, area, and volume when dimensions of a solid are changed proportionally. The measurement activities included in this set focuses on concepts essential to the Grade 8 Mathematics curriculum.
Our Grade 8 Measurement activities empower students to —
Find lateral and total surface area of prisms, pyramids, and cylinders using concrete models and nets (two-dimensional models).
Estimate measurements and use formulas to solve application problems involving lateral and total surface area and volume.
Use the Pythagorean Theorem to solve real-life problems.
Use proportional relationships in similar two-dimensional figures or similar three-dimensional figures to find missing measurements.
Describe the resulting effects on perimeter and area when dimensions of a shape are changed proportionally.
Describe the resulting effect on volume when dimensions of a solid are changed proportionally.
The activities can be used to Assess concepts, Introduce concepts, Review concepts, and to help students Retain the concepts that have been taught. Our Math Activities can be used in a variety of ways to “AIRR” out your math curriculum.
Section One contains a numbered list of activities. Each activity is explained using a step-by-step process identifying the group size and materials needed to complete the task. Some of the activities have matching activity cards and practice sheets which are found in Section Two, Activity Sheets. The top right side of each set of activity cards, and practice sheet corresponds with the matching activity number. An answer key is conveniently provided in Section Three.
Our math activities are aligned to the following standards:
