Reflection: Intervention and Extension Measuring & Comparing the Lengths of Objects - Section 3: Student Practice


To provide an intervention for this student, Marking Eighths, I marked every eighth between one and two. This was very helpful, but now looking back on it, I wish I had one whole ruler with eighths marked for him to use at first. Then, he could have applied his understanding to an unmarked ruler.

Measuring & Comparing the Lengths of Objects

Unit 10: Fractions
Lesson 13 of 16

Objective: SWBAT make a line plot to display a data set of measurements in fractions of a unit (1/2, 1/4, 1/8) and solve problems involving addition and subtraction of fractions by using information presented in line plots.

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