## 4.MD.B.4

## Make a line plot to display a data set of measurements in fractions of a unit (1/2, 1/4, 1/8). Solve problems involving addition and subtraction of fractions by using information presented in line plots. For example, from a line plot find and interpret the difference in length between the longest and shortest specimens in an insect collection.

14 Lesson(s)

#### Teams of students measure seashells in inches and practice identifying benchmark fractions in measurement. They create a line plot with this data and learn to analyze the data using the plot.

Big Idea:

#### Students can interpret data from a line plot.

#### Measuring crayons helps students create data to plot on a line plot and help them understand the meaning of benchmark fractions.

#### In this lesson, students create paper mustaches. Students then measure their mustache to the nearest millimeter and explore the relationship between millimeters and centimeters by reporting their measurement in fraction form. Students will then use their

#### In this lessons, students create line plots after measuring objects to the nearest 1/8 of an inch.

#### In this lesson, students create line plots through a direct instruction approach and then answer questions using these line plots.

Big Idea:

#### How can you identify plant structures used to reproduce?

#### Students will use a ruler to measure everyday objects. Then, they will compare the lengths of the objects by adding and subtracting.

Big Idea:

#### In this multi-day lesson, students work with partners to construct line plots.

#### Students complete differentiated worksheets that help them prepare for the upcoming division test.

#### Students will measure various pencils to the nearest 1/4 inch, make a line plot, and solve problems involving addition and subtraction of fractions.
