Lesson Plan Description

This half day lesson plan is broken down into 2 separate segments (60 minutes each) addressing Measurement and Data: Estimating Lengths (2.MD.3). These lessons include: key measurement vocabulary, guided and independent practice of concepts, and an activity to reinforce the concept of estimating lengths.

  • Segment 1: students will estimate length of objects in inches, feet, centimeters, meters, measure actual lengths of objects, and brainstorm objects that are about a centimeter, inch, foot, and meter.
  • Segment 2: students will read clues and then locate the correct objects to estimate the length of and measure the actual length.

These lessons can be taught over the span of a half day or you can use the lessons independently, broken up over several days.
