Going the Distance KEY QUESTION: What unit of measurement would you use to measure: 1.The distance to your house? 2.The amount of pop in your glass? 3.The weight/mass of your cell phone? INITIAL THOUGHTS:
Evidence 1: T-Chart Customary UnitMetric Unit In the left column, brainstorm as many units of measure that you can
Evidence 1: T-Chart Customary UnitMetric Unit Meters (length) Liters (volume) Grams (mass) In the left column, brainstorm as many units of measure that you can
The Metric System Tim & Moby Video Clip: Customary vs. Metric The Metric Song Metric Song
Lets Practice Trace your hand on the page Draw a line from the tip of your thumb to the tip of your pinky finger. (Well re- measure at the end of the year) How long is it? What are the units you used?
Do Now What metric unit of measurement would you use to measure length?
Evidence: Skate Park
Evidence 2: Skate Park Goal: To create and design 1 structures for your tech deck using the supplies provided. With each structure, you will set a goal. For example: To roll the furthest distance, travel the highest distance, or do a certain trick. Basically, you get to be Skate Park Engineers!!!
Evidence 2: Skate Park As evidence, you will: 1.Sketch ONE structure 2.Using the metric system, measure the height, width, and length and include it in your sketches. Measure in CENTIMETERS (cm)
Analysis Qs 1.What are the three basic metric units? 2.Why is it easier to convert in the metric system? 3.What is most difficult for you in the metric system?
Summary Remember: paragraph format What did you think about the metric system before this lesson? What did you learn about the metric system from this lesson? (Minimum of 3 sentences!!!) What are some further thoughts or questions you have about the metric system.
Reflection Do you think the whole world should use only the metric system? Why or why not?
Big Idea The base units for length, volume, and mass in the metric system are meters, liters, and grams.
Do Now Clear your desks of everything but your journal and a pencil/pen. Write down: Evidence 2: Skate Park
Do Now Turn in your Evidence of Learning Open your journals to the Going The Distance Lesson
