Real World

Measuring is so important in everyday life. Chefs, cooks, and bakers all need to know the exact measurements for recipes to make the food taste delicious. When you go to send a letter or small package in the mail, the postal worker will measure it in grams to tell you how much it will cost to ship.

Future Learning

This week we will continue to learn different ways in how to measure mass as well as liquid volume. Sometimes things are very heavy and it would take a huge number to record it in grams. We will learn more about this later on in the week! We will also learn about different units we can use to measure liquids.

HOMEWORK!!!

Tomorrow we will be doing a special activity measuring the sugar in our snack foods or drinks! For homework, I want you to bring in a food that you want to find out the amount of sugar.

Examples: fruit drinks, sodas, fruit roll-ups, candy bars, skittles, etc.

***Today the measurement table has several snack items and drinks with display cards showing how many grams of sugar are in each of the snacks.

• Hold up a large paper clip and explain that it weighs about one gram.

• Pass some large paper clips around to the students

so that they can get an idea of how heavy a gram feels.

Direct Instruction

“Worth the Weight” (pt. 1 grams)

Students will find five objects they think should be weighed using grams without any prior measuring.

•For each item on their chart, students should hold the item to estimate its weight, measure its weight using a spring scale, then write down the actual weight of each item.

• When students are finished, hold a class discussion about what objects are appropriate to weigh in grams and what students learned from this part of the task.

Assessment

Essential Question

• How can we measure and estimate mass?

Real world connection

• Measuring is so important in everyday life! When people go grocery shopping, some items are priced by weight. If I want to know how much I will need to pay and see if I have enough money to pay the bill, I will need to be able to measure!

Connection to future learning

• Tomorrow we will continue to learn different ways in how to measure mass in kilograms. Sometimes things are very heavy and it would take a huge number to record it in grams. Later on in the week, we will learn about different units that we can use to measure liquids!

Whole Group

• The class will be measuring out the amount of sugar in grams that are in various snack foods and drinks.

The sugar will be placed in baggies and weighed for accurate measurements. We will add the baggies of sugar to the measurement display table for the week.

•Each group of six students will have a different set of snacks and drinks to work with so there will not be duplicate sugar baggy samples among the class.

Grams and Kilograms

Essential Question

• How can we measure and estimate mass?

~• How are grams and kilograms related? ~

Real world connection

• Measuring is so important in everyday life! We cannot measure bigger things in grams, so the heavier things like people or animals we measure in kilograms. One example in real life is when we go for a check-up. Doctors weigh us each visit and use this information to make sure we are growing healthy and strong each time they measure you!

Connection to future learning

• • There are so many ways that we can measure mass. In the future you will learn even more exact metric measurements! It all has to do with multiplication and dividing by 10! So keep practicing those facts!!! Tomorrow we will learn about different units

that we can use to measure liquids!

LIQUID VOLUME

Explore the containers on the Measurement Table

What holds about a liter, less than a liter, more than a liter?

• Small groups of students are given

empty containers of various shapes and sizes, measuring jugs, and a water tray.

Students sort containers into three groups:

those they predict hold less than 1 liter,

those that hold about 1 liter,

and those that hold more than 1 liter.

•

Students check predictions by measuring the capacity of each container

by filling each container with water

and then emptying the water into a measuring container

using metric units of liter or milliliters.

• Students now are to put each container in correct order from least to greatest capacity.

About how much liquid is there in a liter?

o

What other containers have you seen in your everyday life

that has a capacity of one liter?

o

Does the shape of the container change the amount of liquid it can hold?

Why or why not?

Real world connection

• Next time you go through the lunch line, I want you to check out your milk or juice cartons to find out how many milliliters your carton holds!

•

Another fun thing to do is to go home today after school and ask your family permission to look through your refrigerator to find out the capacity of other containers! Or you could help them grocery shop and seem so very smart by asking how many milliliters or liters of milk or water they would like to get.

• We have had so much fun this week measuring mass and liquid volume. This knowledge is so important because everywhere we go; we need to know how to measure! Grocery shopping, making recipes, giving medicine, weighing people and things. These are all essential to our lives.

Connection to future learning

As you continue on in school, you will learn even more ways to measure mass and liquid volume. There are two systems called metric (that we have been exploring this week) and customary. There are many ways to get even more exact measurements so that you will be super smarties!

Post assessment

If you finish early,

you may silently read a book from the measurement center.

Put your NAME on the test!!! Complete front and back. Show all work. Double check your work before you turn in your paper!
