Geometry and Measurement Introductory Activity
Conditions of Use:
Remix and Share
Rating

This was created to introduce my adult students to the accessibility of Geometry and Measurement in the world around them. It can serve as a 1-day activity, or be split into several days. It was followed by a series of more in-depth lessons on shapes, angles, perimeter, area, and volume. Introducing each activity and stopping to discuss after each activity is necessary to helping students process the new information, encourage their latent knowledge, and reassure their uncertainties. Pair or group work is helpful, not only in encouraging weaker students to participate, but in creating greater group cohesion for more effective learning in the new unit.

Tools used: rulers, yard sticks, meter sticks, measuring tape, string w/2 pencils to create circles; styrofoam meat trays, cardboard and scissors to create 2-d shapes; calculators

Grade 2 Module 7:  Problem Solving with Length, Money, and Data

Module 7 presents an opportunity for students to practice addition and subtraction strategies within 100 and problem-solving skills as they learn to work with various types of units within the contexts of length, money, and data.  Students represent categorical and measurement data using picture graphs, bar graphs, and line plots.  They revisit measuring and estimating length from Module 2, though now using both metric and customary units.
