This lesson plan gives you a fun hands-on lesson all about why we use units and their real value and importance.
It demonstrates the impact of not using any units when trying to make and follow a map. What happens if you don't specify a precise length or provide a direction? Does everyone end up in the same or different places!!
Lots of activities are included along with a PowerPoint that supports the lesson.
This session includes lots of fun and memorable experiments for children to try. This lesson plan is ready to use with no preparation other than gathering the readily available equipment and printing out the worksheets that are included in the lessons!
The session is designed to last between 60-90 minutes dependent on the activities you choose to include and can be spread across one or more sessions!
Have a go, have fun and learn something along the way!!
