Measurement Tuning In Activity

Measurement Tuning In Activity

This afternoon, the grade 4 students were introduced to our new measurement unit through a tuning-in provocation. A variety of items were placed throughout the classrooms and students were given the following simple tasks:

  1. Estimate the measurements
  2. Calculate the exact measurements

It was then left to the students to apply their thinking and communication skills to determine how to both estimate and calculate each measurement, as well as identify and accurately use a range of measurement tools.
