Rating

In this unit of study students learn about diversity of life by focusing on bats. They will learn about their habitat, structures and functions, and behaviors. This unit integrates nine STEM attributes and was developed as part of the South Metro-Salem STEM Partnership's Teacher Leadership Team. Any instructional materials are included within this unit of study.

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
Conditions of Use:
Remix and Share
Rating

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.

Growing and Graphing

Students visit second- and fourth-grade classes to measure the heights of older students using large building blocks as a non-standard unit of measure. They also measure adults in the school community. Results are displayed in age-appropriate bar graphs (paper cut-outs of miniature building blocks glued on paper to form bar graphs) enabling a comparison of the heights of different age groups. The activities that comprise this activity help students develop the concepts and vocabulary to describe, in a non-ambiguous way, how heights change as children age. This introduction to graphing provides an important foundation for creating and interpreting graphs in future years.

Kindergartners measure each other's height using large building blocks, then visit a 2nd and a 4th grade class to measure those students. They can also measure adults in the school community. Results are displayed in age-appropriate bar graphs (paper cut-outs of miniature building blocks glued on paper to form a bar graph) comparing the different age groups. The activities that comprise this lesson help students develop the concepts and vocabulary to describe, in a non-ambiguous way, how height changes as children get older. The introduction to graphing provides an important foundation for both creating and interpreting graphs in future years.

Students plant sunflower seeds in plastic cups, and once germinated, expose them to varying light or soil moisture conditions. They measure growth of the seedlings every few days using non-standard measurement (inch cubes). After a few weeks, they compare the growth of plants exposed to the different conditions and make bar comparative graphs, which they analyze to draw conclusions about the needs of plants.
