This lesson on perimeter will let your students walk around the class to see the border, use a measuring tape to measure the walls in their classroom, and enable them to understand how math is related to real life!
Teach your students to find the perimeter of polygons using real world examples. They will make polygon pictures using tangrams and practice finding the perimeters of the polygons in their masterpieces.
While there are many strategies out there to choose from, help your students focus on the number line strategy for solving elapsed time word problems. Use this lesson independently or alongside *Beyond Just Addition.*
Help your students get creative as they apply multiplication skills to find the area of a community garden of their own design! In this lesson, students will practice finding the area of a rectangle within a real-world context.
Get There On Time: Elapsed Time Word Problem Strategies
In this lesson, students will practice strategies of subtracting time and apply them to real life scenarios. Also, use this game with the lesson that teaches addition of elapsed time called Beyond Just Addition.
Support your students' comprehension of perimeter word problems by teaching them to use an engaging strategy and graphic organizer. This lesson can stand alone or be used as a pre-lesson for *Polygon Perimeters with Tantalizing Tangrams!*
Get your students explaining estimations and measurements of liquid volumes and masses of objects! Use this lesson independently or alongside *Estimating Measurements of Mass and Volume Using Metric Units.*
In this hands-on lesson, your students will get to sharpen their measuring skills as they measure lengths of items in your classroom to the nearest quarter inch. They'll get to then use their data to create line plots.
Allow your students to explore the pros and cons of different strategies used to find the area of rectangles. Use this as a stand alone lesson or as a pre-lesson for the Multiplication and Area in the Community Garden lesson.
In this interactive lesson that includes the use of clock manipulatives, students will discover that addition goes beyond straightforward addition problems. Finding the elapsed time is easy with addition!
