converting/renaming 


3. Goals: Aims/Outcomes

My goal is for the students to become comfortable adding and subtracting
customary units as well as renaming. 


4. Objectives

1.Students will compute with customary unit.
2. Students will rename units when necessary. 


5. Materials and Aids

White boards
dry erase markers
laptop
envelope
playing card
piece of paper
pencil
Measuring worksheet
Textbook
Exit slip 


6. Procedures/Methods

A. Introduction
1. We will discuss the relationship between feet and inches and
how many inches are in a foot. 


B. Development
As a class we will discuss the relationship between feet and inches.
We will work on the examples and several other problems together.
The students will solve these problems on their whiteboards and show
their answer. 


C. Practice
1. Students will be split into groups of four. They will be given
4 items to measure using a ruler. After measuring the items they will
record the lengths as well as compute the problems given to them on
a worksheet.
We will review all of the groups' answers when they have finished.
If a group finishes early they may begin on their independent work. 


D. Independent Practice
Students will complete their independent book work. 


E. Accommodations (Differentiated Instruction)
1. Those students that I see are having a difficult time during
the lesson will be pulled to work with me at a side table.
2. The high students that finish quickly will be given more challenging
problems to work on with renaming. 


F. Checking for understanding
1. Students will turn in their independent work.
2. Students will complete an exit slip.



G. Closure
1. I will class students back to their desk. Here we will discuss
some things we noticed when working these problems. (renaming)
2. They will also be handed an exit slip to complete and turn in. 


7. Evaluation

1. Independent class work
2. Exit slip
