LENGTH AND HEIGHT LESSON PLAN
1. Warm-up: Bring in a ruler, yardstick, and tape measure. Ask students what these instruments measure. Have them estimate the height, length, and width of the classroom. Find these measurements as a class and compare them to the estimates.
2. Motivate the Lesson: Ask students to estimate the height of the Empire State Building. Ask them what the appropriate units would be (i.e.: inches, miles, or feet). Explain that an inch is the smallest unit of measure and a mile is the largest unit of measure that you will discuss today.
3. Proceed through the lesson with the “Question of the Day”.
4. Stress the importance of when to multiply and when to divide by having each student write down, verbally repeat, and use the rules in the examples provided.
5. Have students complete the
“Length and Height” Worksheet for homework.
