### Measuring Sense

Kathleen Coogan

Hillery Park Elementary #27

Buffalo School District

Spring 2008

Background Information
• This lesson was created for a general education class of 24 students.
• The class was made up of 14 boys and 10 girls.
• There are no students in the class with an IEP; however 1 student receives direct instruction during literacy.
Purpose
• To evaluate the students’ understanding of the use of measurement units and tools to measure specified objects.
Time Frame
• This lesson takes one 50 minute class period.
• Students who finish early are given the opportunity to complete one of two activities.
• The students who require extended time can finish their measurements during math.
Objectives
• 1.0 The students will show measurement conversions in writing with the standard units.
• 2.0 The students will be able to verbally state the order of objects according to the length.
• 3.0 The students will be able to record the accurate measurement of different objects using the proper standard unit.
Essential Question
• What would it be like if we only used one unit of measurement?
Enduring Understanding
• Using appropriate units of measurement allows us to better express and communicate an objects size.
• Using the appropriate tool for measurement is the easiest form of measurement (football field measured with a yard/meter stick, height with a ruler (feet), and length of book with a ruler).
Guiding Questions
• Why do you think there is more than one unit of measurement?
• What are objects that I could measure using each standard unit?
• What is the relationship of inches to feet?
• What unit would you rather use to measure a football field?
• How would you measure the distance from your house to school?
• Differentiate and use the proper unit of measurement for different items
• Match the proper unit of measurement when given an object to measure
• Record the accurate measurement and label with the proper unit

Evt/Mng Modifications
• Overview of rules/Student Groups
• Students are aware of expectations and demonstrate responsibility for own actions
• Students work with members of the class based on seating groups
Instructional/Materials Mod
• Students repeat the directions to the teacher before beginning the independent work
• The students will understand the task by restating it in their own words
Content/Materials
• Use different tools to measure
• Different Size Rulers
• Different tools (yard stick/ruler)
• Students become familiar with standard units
Reflection

Thanks to my peer review group I learned I could..

1. Let students choose their own objects

2. Add children's books on measurement
