This resource will help assess your students' mastery of concepts surrounding measurement and time. This worksheet will challenge your third graders with problems on area, perimeter, measurement, and elapsed time problems.
Measurement and data in first grade includes such important concepts as comparing the length and weight of two objects using a third object. This guided lesson, designed by curriculum experts, takes students on an exploration of these measurement and data concepts. Once through with the lesson, kids can gain extra practice with measurement and data with the accompanying worksheets.
Representing data on graphs makes math visual and involves some creativity and design. Plotting data using fractional units takes their learning one step further. Also in this unit, students learn to measure using both traditional units (like inches, feet and yards) and metric units, and how to convert measurements within each system. The concept of measurement gets two dimensional when students explore measuring and working with angles.
The ability to compare numbers with ease is crucial to understanding the relationship between numbers, also called number sense. The abstract nature of number sense makes extra practice crucial. This guided lesson helps kindergarteners to learn this skill with targeted instruction and engaging exercises. Further opportunities for practice can be found in the comparing numbers worksheets suggested to go along with this lesson.
Let your child pretend to be an interior designer for a day, taking and comparing measurements of their bedroom’s furniture. With the dimensions of their room in mind, and all of the objects in it they enjoy using, your child can begin calculating just where different objects belong. Activities like these, and others listed below, will help teaching comparing measurements, but also build addition, subtraction, and other skills.
