Are your 3rd graders struggling with measuring to the 1/2 and 1/4 of an inch? This unit is perfect to help those struggling learners. This Measure It! pack is specifically for the math standard 3.MD.4.
Included in this 30 slide lesson are:
1. 12 task cards on measuring to the 1/2 and 1/4 of an inch. These cards are bright and colorful. Each slide includes a ruler. Students have to determine the measurement of the line above the ruler to the nearest 1/2 or 1/4 of an inch. A student work mat is included.
2. A 20 slide power point lesson on measuring to the 1/2 and 1/4 of an inch. This lesson takes the students through dissecting an inch ruler and what each mark on the ruler represents. Then it goes over measuring to the 1/2 of an inch. Slides of examples are provided to help students practice this skill. Finally measuring to the 1/4 of an inch and the steps to follow are included on the final slides along with more practice.
My 3rd graders struggled with the presentation used in our math textbook, so I created this pack to help them with this standard. It was fabulous! Even my struggling learners said this helped them understand the concept.
