This is the second in a series of 4 video lessons on Customary Measurement and the Fractions involved. This package includes a video (4:31 minutes) which features the lousy joke telling of our animated character host, Chloe. Also included is a lesson plan, Common Core Standards relative to the Measurement Unit, and student worksheets (2) which accompany the video.
Other videos in this series are: Video 2: The Inch, Video 3: Equivalent fractions, and Video 4: Measuring the Line.
Originally designed for selling as a bundled Unit, but limited because of size. Please watch the video on the Preview document to gain a better understanding of this product.
This video provides instruction on the breakdown of an inch using colored cardstock to demonstrate the division of segments to get halves, fourths, eighths, and sixteenths.
Chloe, the animated host of the series, visits in the beginning and end of the video to provide a bit of entertainment.
The student worksheets contain templates identical to those used in the video for students to utilize as they complete questions and activities relative to the video.
These materials have been used in my classroom and are helping students to grasp the concept of measurement and basic fractions at the same time!
