Reflection: Student Communication Measuring Solids - Section 3: Explore

 

 

This experiment was beneficial to my students because they had the opportunity to measure various solids, weight, and length. The students were familiar with using a ruler, but it is a skill that we continue to have to work on because some students want to start measuring at 1 instead of 0 or at the edge of the ruler if they do not see a 0.  The investigation allowed me to reinforce how to use a ruler effectively. Also, the students enjoyed weighing the solids because they have not worked with balance scales and grams. This investigation provided students with a chance to use science tools to measure solids, weight, and length.
