Measurement Unit

Not included in these lessons was that we started each day doing SOL 4 Today and a review of the classwork/homework from the previous day.  With all assignments, it is necessary to rotate around the room checking problems as they go answering questions, redirecting, etc...  Anything not completed in class becomes homework.

They CAN use a calculator for this strand - I made them always set up the problem first though.

We also went to the computer lab once a week for practice - you could always tell them to do this at home if they have access to a computer.  There were other things I did but I was not able to locate them and/or did not have them in my plans.

Click on the category/lesson you want below and then you will see just the files that go with that lesson.  It will also give you a brief explanation of what you could do for that lesson.

These were emergency plans for when we lost our building and we had to work out of two local churches.


Lesson 13 ~ Perimeter and Area Activity

Pondering Perimeters and Analyzing Areas - use one inch tiles to explore how perimeter and area changes.   - OR -
Problem Solving with Pentominoes - this is from one of the TEAMS - "Funny Lady" videos.  I have the clips on the T drive.  I went ahead and ran off pentominoes on cardstock for my students so they could each have a set to play with last year.  Several wanted to explore on their own. This one was challenging since they had not had much experience with pentominoes.
