- 2.MD.A.1Measure the length of an object by selecting and using appropriate tools such as rulers, yardsticks, meter sticks, and measuring tapes.
- 2.MD.A.2Measure the length of an object twice, using length units of different lengths for the two measurements; describe how the two measurements relate to the size of the unit chosen
- 2.MD.A.3Estimate lengths using units of inches, feet, centimeters, and meters.
- 2.MD.A.4Measure to determine how much longer one object is than another, expressing the length difference in terms of a standard length unit.

That's Not a Plant, It's a Weed! Discovering Functions of External Plant Parts; What Makes a Plant a Plant?

4th Grade Science

Â» Unit:

Plants: Structures and Processes

Big Idea:Using data and prior knowledge, students use Educreations to explain their observations, measurements and understanding of various plant's external parts and how they help the plant survive in its environment.

Dunes

4th Grade Science

Â» Unit:

Weathering

Big Idea:In this math and science integrated lesson, students explore how wind affects
sand by making a mini dune and exposing it to wind.

Counting Bugs

2nd Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Adding and Subtracting the Basics

Big Idea:Students need to experience real life math situations. They also need to become comfortable sharing their understandings with others.

Building and Testing Our Vanilla Plant Pollinator

2nd Grade Science

Â» Unit:

Pollination and Seed Dispersal

Big Idea:Our student engineers build their own plant pollinator design. Then they test it to determine its effectiveness. Life can be pretty sweet!

It's All in the Details!

2nd Grade Science

Â» Unit:

Igniting Science Inquiry

Big Idea:How do scientists make observations? Let's explore this idea and find out all of the different ways to observe.

Measurement: Distance

6th Grade Science

Â» Unit:

Measuring Matter

Big Idea:Students practice precise and accurate measurement of distance.

Equal Amounts

2nd Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Adding and Subtracting the Basics

Big Idea:Students are expected to grasp that measuring the same object with different units can yield a different number, but represent the same quantity.

Build a Paper Tower Challenge (Part 3) Building and Measuring Our Towers

2nd Grade Science

Â» Unit:

Building Towers and the Engineering Design Process

Big Idea:We can build a tower from plans that we have developed. Once built, we can measure the structure to see if it meets the specifications.

Adding and Subtracting with Lengths

2nd Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Length

Big Idea:Students will use their addition and subtraction strategies to measure and compare distances, solving using centimeter units.

Measurement: The skill of how long, how big, how small, how much?

2nd Grade Science

Â» Unit:

Inquiry in Science

Big Idea:Measurement is a tool that can makes life easier.

Science is "Snow" Much Fun! (Part 2)

2nd Grade Science

Â» Unit:

Igniting Science Inquiry

Big Idea:A melting snowman experiment is snow much fun!

Mini- Lesson: A Big Splash!

4th Grade Science

Â» Unit:

Waves

Big Idea:Students drop several different sized objects into a bucket of water and observe what happens by measuring how long the wave continues after the displacement.

Lines and Line Segments

2nd Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Geometry

Big Idea:Common Core expectations for second grade are that students will be able to measure a line segment, record the length in appropriate units, and add and subtract to compare the lengths of the lines.

Math Treasure Hunt
