This is a TWELVE day packet (180+ pages) that walks students through perimeter, area, and volume in a step by step process. It is loaded with real life examples.
It not only teaches the conceptuals, but the conceptuals are sustained throughout the entire unit. This provides students multiple opportunities to solidify the concepts of linear, square, and cubic measurements. Much effort was given to try to align this with the Common Core.
Included are the following:
--Notes and answer keys to notes containing suggested problems to use as introduction or review for the particular day
--Worksheets for homework, answer keys to the hw, + answer keys with a suggested point values (Also, the keys show how the answers were derived)
--Multiple photos of cubic figures created out of centimeter cubes that help students understand the difference between volume and surface area
--A review packet that includes 23 real life examples challenging students to review definitions, formulas, and types of units (This is in addition to the normal worksheets)
-A study guide (practice test) that has an answer key (Students can get extra credit by getting a parent signature.)
-2 tests (with answer keys included) so that retakes are available
-There are also templates for 3 days in case you believe you need an additional day on a particular concept. All you have to do is add in your numbers/problems.
I presently use it in 5th grade, though it could be used a a remedial tool for 6th grade.
