WHOLE GROUP: Lesson One: Measuring in Meters

Allow many student experiences to use a meter stick and measuring tape to measure and record objects around the room and school. Hold them accountable to give their responses using sentence stems.

"The length of the table is less than one meter." "The length of the file cabinet is one meter.' 'The length of the rug is more than one meter."

*students investigate in small groups and record the sentence stems in their math journals.

Great activity we did last year students measure their height in meters and use the sentence stem: I am less than one meter I am greater than one meter.

You can do this activity for meters or centimeters: I am less than/equal to/ greater than a meter......or I am _____centimeters tall.

I included a quick video on What to look out for and questions to ask for measure and compare...

Explain Everything: Morales video

Scenario: Ms. Poe is 162 centimeters and Ms. Stevens is 15 centimeters taller than Ms. Poe. How tall is Ms. Stevens?

Kenner is 85 centimeters tall. Joshua is 19 centimeters shorter than Kenner. What is the height of Joshua?

Allow the students many opportunities to compare two objects starting from a different point.
