Can we model how large the solar system really is? Attempt an astronomical feat with a hands-on-activity that uses a roll of toilet paper. Young scientists measure the distances of the planets from the sun to create a scale model of the...
Mia's pet lizard has grown a lot since he was a baby and she needs help measuring his length now that he's an adult. After choosing the best tool for the job, RJ goes step by step through the measurement process, modeling how to use both...
Through a series of worksheets, mathematicians practice with various concepts of measurement. Conveniently, the 6 pages are easily broken up for individual assignments, and seem to progress in difficulty. Math concepts include drawing...
Study customary measurements with your sixth graders. They will investigate linear and capacity measurements to then measure and convert linear and capacity units. Finally they will work in small groups to conduct experiments. Resources...
Here is a well-designed lesson on common standards of measurement for your young mathematicians. In it, learners calculate measurements in standard and non-standard units. They make predictions, record data, and construct and design...
How did the metric system come to be, and why does the US not use it very much? Your class can learn the answers to these questions with the reading passage included here and then respond to the five related questions.

Trying to understand the vastness of outer space can be quite a challenge for young scientists. Help put things in perspective with this cross-curricular activity as students work in pairs creating scaled models of the solar system,...
Normal Community High School
Pupils learn everything from how to take scientific measurements, to accuracy/precision, to density and a plethora of topics from a presentation on the metric system.
Students compare the digestive systems of the buffalo and of the zebra, diagram their systems, and compare their lengths. In this digestive system lesson plan, students learn about their diets as well.

How many planets can you name? Did you get all 13 in our solar system, including the dwarf planets, or were you surprised when you read there are 13 planets? The lesson helps scholars understand the scale of the universe including the...
Explore outer space and decorate your classroom with an astronomy project. Learners create a visual model with the creation of a scaled solar system using different sized balls.
Santa Monica College
We use basic units of measurement to break down things and communicate clearly. The first lesson in an 11-part series teaches the proper way to measure various items. It starts simply with measuring the dimensions and areas of geometric...
In this measurement worksheet, students work with metric conversions. Students are given twenty-one measurements which they are to convert to another measurement.
In this units of measure worksheet, students convert millimeters to centimeters. Students complete 10 problems where they convert millimeters to centimeters.
Students explore geometry by utilizing measurement tools. In this measurements lesson plan, students identify the different forms of measurements such as time, temperature, capacity and length. Students utilize rulers, weights and clocks...
Students determine how to convert measurement. In this English Measurement lesson, students discover interesting facts about the history of measurement. Students study formulas and practice using them.
Do your learners know that there are different systems to measure length, volume, and weight? Explain metric measuring and its base ten decimal system using this comprehensive set of worksheets! For all three types of measurement,...
Applying this metric instructional activity, mathematicians will provide standard metric units of measurement, identify the largest and best way to measure items using the metric system, and convert units using King Henry.
In a cross-curricular measurement and literacy lesson, your class will identify and compare cooking measurement instruments. They read a recipe and sequence a set of similar instructions in which the steps have been mixed up....
Learners measure using the metric system. In this geometry lesson, students solve problems using grams, meters and liters. They convert between the US units of measurements and the Metric System.
Young chemists create gold nanoparticles as they learn to measure accurately with the metric system. They create an advertisement for the application of nanotechnology to complete the first instructional activity in a series of six.
Young scientists gain a better understanding of space, the solar system and its vastness by creating a scale model. Students first need to calculate the distance between each of the nine planets according to the size of their scale. This...
