This is the first 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 differences between the metric and customary marks on a ruler, the increments each type measures, how to determine whether the ruler measures 16ths or 8ths, and shows a brief breakdown of the divisions within an inch.
Chloe, the animated host of the series, visits in the beginning and end of the video and introduces the topic.
