## TEKS: Metric Measurement of Length

## VOCABULARY- DEFINITION AND VISUAL (Anchor charts)

## In second grade the metric units of measurements used are: centimeter and meter.

Metric System Conversions Song | Measurement by NUMBEROCK

## SENTENCE STEMS evident in the classroom..anchor chart, small group (sentence strips, math journals,) The focus is always that students are responding using the sentence stems.

* add to the sentence stems in your unit folder

## Anchor Charts for Metric Measurement and Time:

## TECH INTEGRATION

## Students conduct a school scavenger hunt w/ tech integration: SKITCH, Explain EVERYTHING,ChatterPix

## Students measure each other's height in centimeters and record in their math journals. Where do students start to measure? end? | ## Students use Skitch to annotate their measurements. |

## DOINK CREATION: A STUDENT'S PERSPECTIVE OF THE METRIC MEASUREMENT ACTIVITIES.

## This unit is rich in investigations students will experience on their own and in small group.

## Real-World Examples: students get to measure and record the length of objects throughout the unit

## Big Idea: How long is a meter? How do I know if an object is more than/less than a meter?

## Sentence Stems: "The door's height is greater than a meter."

The _____ ________ is _____ than a _______.

## "The length of the frame is less than a meter."

## SMALL GROUP ACTIVITIES-small group folder

## Lesson One Small Group- Measuring in Meters

## Lesson Three & Five: Real-World: Measuring in Centimeters

## Lesson Four: Comparing Measurements in Centimeters

## TASK CARDS STUDENTS WILL USE TO MEASURE IN CENTIMETERS AND METERS.

## First Day- BUILDING BACKGROUND..introduce the measuring tools for the unit... ruler (centimeter) and meter stick as well as the vocabulary for the unit.

* Thursday, Feb. 23

## Introduce the meterstick....

*Reinforce the use of the sentence stems greater than/less than; short/longer than, etc

## WHOLE GROUP: Lesson One: Measuring in Meters

## "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.

* YARN

*students pictures

*sentence strips for the sentence stem:

I am _________ a meter

I am ____centimeters tall.

## If you do not have a picture of your students have them draw their face instead!

## WHOLE GROUP: Lesson Two: Comparing Lengths in Meters

## Ex. Joshua walked 7 meters, Dane walked 4 meters. How many more meters did Joshua walk than Dane?

## Sentence Stem: _______ walked _______more _______than_______.

## Sentence Stem: The ________ is shorter than the ________ by _________meter(s.)

## Whole Group: Lesson Three: Measuring in Centimeters

*introduce the unit of measurement: centimeters

* many small group investigations

*many opportunities to use sentence stems

## Sentence Stem: The ________ is _______ centimeters long.

## Whole Group: Lesson Four: Comparing Measurements in Centimeters Explain Everything on "The goal for measure and compare lessons....

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

**Explain Everything: Morales video**

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

## WHOLE GROUP: Lesson Five: Use Bar Models to Solve Measurement Problems in Meters: Explain Everything

**Explain Everything video: Morales**

By this chapter our students are comfortable with number bonds and bar models we will build on that for this lesson.

## Good book for students to checkout-have in your class library

## I also included a video of the story being read...
