  1. 1. Measuring Distance/Telling Time<br />
  2. 2. What your child will get from this unit.<br />-What the importance of being able to measure length in different units or tell time down to the minute.<br />-How will being able to distinguish between inch, feet, and yards help in the future?<br />-How will being able to tell time on both digital and analog help in the future?<br />-What is smaller inch or foot or yard?-What is the difference in a Digital clock and an Analog clock?-Which is more common form of telling time? Digital or Analog<br />
  3. 3. The Role of the Parents and Students.<br />The expected role of the student in this unit is to become quick at telling time on both of the types of clocks. We will be playing team games to help.<br />The expected role of the parent in this unit is to be as supportive as possible. Both of these lessons can be difficult.<br />
  4. 4. My Role as the Teacher.<br />- In these activities I will merely act as a judge since these are games I will just sit back and guide if necessary. The students who struggle I will make a note of this and the student and I will work on those specific issues.<br />
  5. 5. This will benefit all the students because these are everyday things that must be learned.<br />
  6. 6. The following Standards and Objectives will be met.<br />Alabama Standards<br /><ul><li>MA.2.10. Measure length in customary units, including inches, feet, and yards

  8. 8. - Students will be able to read both analog and digital clocks</li></li></ul><li>Project Based Learning in the classroom<br />-Project based Learning is when projects or some type of hands on activity is conducted.<br />-I will be using this strategy just as often as I use any other means of teaching because I believe that students will learn and retain the information better if they gain experience of what they are being taught.<br />
