This unit is designed to be everything you will need to teach students how to measure. There are suggestions on how to use the math videos in your classroom included.
Each page in this unit that is considered a “homework” page has a QR Code. The QR Code links to a video that teaches the student how to do the lesson. There are 10 lessons in this unit. These include:
-Measuring with a cube
-Estimating and measuring inches
- Measuring feet and inches (and some conversions)
-Inches, feet, and yards (and some conversions)
-Centimeters and meters
-Attributes of measurement: weight, length, capacity
-Telling temperature in Fahrenheit and Celsius
There are three different assessments for this unit. The first two are quick checks that are to be used in the middle of the unit. The other is a final assessment that tests their understanding over the whole unit.
Instructional Math Videos
In my classroom, I implement a Flipped Classroom. This means my students watch a math video for homework each night. They return to school ready to practice the skill together. For classrooms that are not 1:1 or cannot take technology home, you can also use these videos as a small group for reteaching, or for morning work. This video is accessible by a QR Code at the top of a homework page.
