### "More Lessons" On Different Attributes of Measurement

1. 1. More Lessons on Length k-2 Length- Students use non standard units to measure how far the lady bugs go. http://illuminations.nctm.org/LessonDetail.aspx?id=L123 3-5 Length - Students use non standard units of measurement such as their own feet to measure length. http://illuminations.nctm.org/LessonDetail.aspx?id=L635 6-8 Length- Students get to play around with mass and length while rolling a ball down an incline and measuring how far the ball roles and at what speed. http://illuminations.nctm.org/LessonDetail.aspx?id=L278 Table of Contents
2. 2. More Lessons on Area & Volume k-2 Area and Volume- For k-2 the focus should be on conservation of space in area and volume using tangrams pieces for area, water or seeds for volume. Area and Volume lesson examples.pdf 3-5 Area and Volume- Focus more on square units for area, figuring out the area of tangram shapes based upon individual piece area, physical manipulation of square cubes for volume and creating rectangular "prisms" our of paper to fill with those cubes, etc. (Also begin connecting the patterns between simple perimeter, area, and volume measurements.) Area and Volume lesson examples.pdf 6-8 Area and Volume- Focus on developing their own formulas for perimeter, area, and volume. Perhaps using a formula for perimeter in their area formula and then volume as one possibility. These grades should be able to use more complex figures: rhombuses, pyramids, irregular triangular prisms, etc. The tetrahedral kite project would be fun, but the shape could be rectangles or some other three-dimensional shape to differentiate for the different levels.

3. 3. More Lessons on Weight & Mass k-2 Weight and Mass: The weight of Things lesson plan teaches the students to recognize that items have a measurable attribute and that they will practice using both types of units, standard and non-standard. (K-2nd Grade) http://illuminations.nctm.org/LessonDetail.aspx?ID=L128 Interactive virtual lesson for students that have them perform tasks based off of learned terms and concepts (K-2nd Grade) http://www.linkslearning.org/Kids/1_Math/2_Illustrated_Lessons/6_Weight_and_Capacity/index.html 3-5 Weight and Mass: This PBS website combines video of lessons pertaining to weight, mass, and volume and includes written lesson plans and standards. (3-5th Grade) http://pbs-mathline.onstreammedia.com/cgi-bin/visearch?user=pbs_mathline&template=template_3- 5.html&query=+weight%2C+mass%2C+and+volume&grade=3&MathCategory=weight%2C+mass%2C+and+volu me&submit.x=19&submit.y=11 6-8 Weight and Mass: In this lesson plan, Can you find the difference? Students create and implement a balance to record and investigate the difference in weight between groups of pennies.

4. 4. More Lessons on Time k-2 Time- “The Grouchy Lady Bug”- Student’s practice telling time by the hour with the help of the The Grouchy Lady Bug by Eric Carle. http://www.lessonplanspage.com/MathTime.htm 3-5 Time- "Competing Coasters"- Predictions of how fast, high and which roller coaster goes faster or further. http://illuminations.nctm.org/LessonDetail.aspx?id=L241 6-8 Time- "Finding Our Top Speed."- Hands on activity about the topic of time travel in space. Students will develop their understandings of time and distance. http://illuminations.nctm.org/LessonDetail.aspx?id=L254 Table of Contents
5. 5. More Lessons on Angles k-2 Angles- Shapes and Angles. http://www.crayola.com/lesson-plans/detail/shapes--angles-lesson-plan/ 3-5 Angles- 1. http://www.aplusmath.com/cgi-bin/games/geomatho - a fun angle math game, maybe we could play it with the class 2. http://www.toonuniversity.com/6m_angle_d.html- Really fun game, destroy the spaceships by answering questions about angles! 3. http://www.uen.org/Lessonplan/preview.cgi?LPid=21496 -Mr. Bo Jangle, What's your angle 4. http://www.shodor.org/interactivate/lessons/AnglesElem/ -Angles 6-8 Angles- And here is the one I thought fit for older grades, but could fit lower grades too School Store Mathematics Lesson Plan #3 Measuring Angles http://www.raymondgeddes.com/lesson-plans/math-lesson-3/measuring-angles-all.html Table of Contents
