This standards-based measurement unit focuses on the Common Core math standards 2.MD.3. This asks students to estimate a length of an object, then check their estimation by measuring the object. There are daily lesson plans, whole group activities, partner practice activities, MATH group centers, exit slips, and assessments.
What’s included in the 3 daily lesson plans:
- Whole group activity
- Partner practice activity
- MATH group: Math writing, Apply new skills, Teacher time, Hands-on math (Teacher time is differentiated learning opportunities for remediation, on-level, and enrichment.)
- Exit slip
–Day 1- Making Realistic Measurements
–Day 2- Estimating and Checking Estimations
–Day 3- Practicing Estimations
Estimate lengths using units of inches, feet, centimeters, and meters.
The 2.MD.3 activities that are included in my short answer, centers, printables, and interactive notebooks are similar, but have all been changed to fit these lesson plans. The short answers have different prompts and are now part of MATH groups, the printables & interactive notebooks have been updated and are used during the ‘Apply new skills’ part of MATH groups.
**A full CCSS curriculum bundle will not be available until all units are complete.**
