Description

***ADDED A SECTION ON TEACHING AREA -> hands-on lessons, activities and printables***

This unit is packed with lessons, centers, printables and lots of easy to make hands-on activities that focus on measurement. Simply add simple math manipulatives such as: counters, Unifix cubes, links, balance/scale, empty bottles, measuring cups/spoons, thermometer, etc.

This unit focuses on 5 different components of measurement in kindergarten:

  • length/height
  • mass
  • capacity
  • temperature
  • area

Here's what's included:

- 1 week (5 days) of lesson plans for Length/Height

- 1 week (5 days) of lesson plans for Capacity & Weight

- measurement posters (measurement, length/height, weight, capacity, temperature, area)

Length/Height

- grid paper for names

- "How Long is your Foot?" -> measure foot and record

- "I'm Learning to Measure" -> cards to practice identifying how to measure (start/end, counting)

- "Measuring at the Zoo" -> measure various zoo animals using the non-standard measuring tool included and record
