Our Basic Measurement lesson plan defines and distinguishes between length, capacity, and weight. Students engage in interactive activities to help them understand the terms related to each of the units of measurement and develops critical thinking when distinguishing the applicable unit of measurement. During this lesson, students are asked to match words and images to the correct type of measurement (capacity, length, or weight). Students are also asked to determine the best form of measurement for different objects.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to define and distinguish between length, capacity, and weight and recognize the terms related to each of the units of measurement.
