Overview & Purpose
Assess your student’s or child’s ability to use a nonstandard unit to measure capacity with this quick two-question exit slip.
ON GRADE LEVEL: Grades 2-3
ENRICHMENT: Grades K-1
RETEACH: Grades 4-5
2.MD.4.9 ~ Generate measurement data by measurement data by measuring data by measuring lengths of several objects to the nearest whole unit.
3.MD.1.2 ~ Measure and estimate liquid volumes and masses of objects using standard units of grams (g), kilograms (kg), and liters (l). Add, subtract, multiply, or divide to solve one-step word problems involving masses or volumes that are given in the same units.
The student or child can use a nonstandard unit to measure capacity.
No text needed, however, this lesson goes along with the Go Math! Planning Guide ~ Getting Ready for Grade 3, Lesson 16.
Everything is provided for you:
Exit Slip (make the copies you need)
Student Work Space Sheet
Student Evidence of Learning/Verification
Check your student’s or child’s understanding by the performance on the exit slip.
1. Teach or show your child how to use a nonstandard unit to measure capacity.
e.g., How to use a smaller scoop to estimate how many of the scoops it would take to fill another larger object.
2. Have your student or child complete the exit slip.
3. Assess how well he or she did using the answer key (provided).
Common Error: If there are any missed questions your student or child may not understand how to make visual connections between nonstandard units of capacity and everyday objects.
Reteach: Draw the estimated amount of water that would be poured into the glass and/or bucket after one scoop of water was poured in. Have your child or student estimate the amount that would be in the container after a second scoop would be poured in. Continue until 3 or 10 scoops of water have been poured in.
