Chelsea Prue 1Lesson Topic: Standard and Metric Systems of MeasurementIntroduction • Lesson Topic: Mathematics in Song: Standard and Metric System • Length of Lesson: 90 minutes (1 block). • VA Standards of Learning: Mathematics 6.9: The student will compare and convert units of measure for lengths, area, weight/mass, and volume within the U.S. Customary system and the metric system and estimate conversions between units in each system: a. length - part of an inch (1/2, ¼, and 1/8), inches, feet, yards, miles, millimeters, centimeters, meters, and kilometers; b. weight/mass – ounces, pounds, tons, grams, and kilograms; c. liquid volume – cups, pints, quarts, gallons, milliliters, and litersCognitive ObjectivesStudents will: • Compare and convert units of measure for the lengths, area, weight/mass, and volume within the U.S. Customary system and the metric system. • Estimate the conversion of units of lengths, area, weight/mass, and volume between the U.S. Customary system and the metric system by using ballpark comparisons. • Determine the most appropriate unit of measure for a given situation.Materials/Technology and Advanced Preparation • Laptops and headphones for all students. • Class website to post audio files. • Crossword puzzle worksheet (The Standard System) for all students. • Crossword puzzle worksheet (Meters, Liters and Grams) for all students. • “Measurements and Conversions” worksheet for all students. • “Meters, Liters & Grams” worksheet for all students. • Framing Routine worksheets for all students.Teaching and Learning SequenceIntroduction/Anticipatory Set • Hand out “The Standard System” Crossword Puzzle to half of the class, and “Meters, Liters & Grams” Crossword Puzzle to the rest of the class. • Half of students listen to “The Standard System,” and complete the Crossword Puzzle (“The Standard System”) worksheet. • The other half of students listen to “Meters, Liters & Grams” and complete the Crossword Puzzle (“Meters, Liters & Grams”) worksheet. • Students pair up with another student that listened to the other song: - Students that listened to “The Standard System” pair up with students that listened to “Meters, Liters & Grams.” - Hand out “The Standard System” Crossword Puzzle to students who do not already have the worksheet. - Hand out “Meters, Liters & Grams” Crossword Puzzle to students who do not already have the

If not, teacher will answer the question.Closure • Each student chooses two Framing Routines that they did not completely understand. • Based on the two Framing Routines, students write two questions on a sheet of paper, and hand in the piece of paper as an ‘Exit Ticket’ as they leave class.Homework • Measurements and Conversions Worksheet (to go along with “The Standard System” song). • Meters, Liters & Grams Worksheet (to go along with “Meters, Liters & Grams” song). • Finish Crossword Puzzles (“The Standard System” and “Meters, Liters & Grams”) if you have not already done so.AssessmentFormative • Students review material and teach one another during Anticipatory Set, demonstrating prior and new knowledge of the subject. • Students become ‘experts’ on one topic, then teach the topic to the class, demonstrating and solidifying new knowledge.Summative • Homework assignments reflect students’ new knowledge of the standard and metric measuring systems. • ‘Exit Ticket’ requires students to ask questions about concepts they did not understand. These questions will be used to review concepts during the Anticipatory Set of the following lesson.
