Our Time Unit has passed and we are moving right along to our Measurement Unit. To start off this new focus I began our day with more of an inquiry feel to it. We created a “Measurement Graffiti Wall” to see what prior knowledge we all had about measurement. The kids were able to come up with measurement tools, terms, and illustrations.
From there we made a list of things we could measure in the classroom. This unit is my first topic, besides Social Studies and Science inquiries, that I’m letting the students take charge of. From this list of topics I will then form my lesson plans to tailor to the state standards but also seek the kids’ interests. We are all super excited for this new unit in math!
Now who said math can’t be fun??
