1. Topic-
Liquid Measurement
 
2. Content-
measurement, liquid, liquid measurement, gallon, quart, pint, and cup
 
3. Goals: Aims/Outcomes-
1.Students should be able to build the gallon man.

2.student will be able to identify concrete models that approximate standard units for capacity and use them to measure capacity.
3. Students will be able to make measurement conversions.

 
4. Objectives-
1.students will be able to remember liquid-measurement formulas.
2. Students will use Mr. Gallon to complete an activity sheet that includes liquid-measurement equations
Students should be able to make simple conversions.

3.Use a worksheet with conversions from cups to gallons etc.

 
5. Materials and Aids-
Mr. Gallon body & limbs
Scissors
Glue
colors/crayons
Gallon man worksheets
 
6. Procedures/Methods-

A. Introduction-

1.Show students examples of cup, pint, quart, and gallon.
2.Have students explain what each is. Then the teacher will explain.
3.pick two students, they will demonstrate how many of each unit makes up another unit.
Show students an example of the "Gallon Man." Explain how he is put together.
Pass out materials to the students.
Monitor the room and help as needed.

 

B. Development-

1..The student volunteers will demonstrate how many of each unit makes up another unit.
2. Show students an example of the "Gallon Man." Explain how he is put together.
3. Pass out materials to the students.
4. Monitor the room and help as needed.
 

C. Practice-

1.While they are building their Gallon Man. Students will be repeating.
2.How many cups are in a gallon?
3.How many quarts are in a gallon?
4 And so on.
 

D. Independent Practice-

1.Students will create their own 3 questions different that the ones already were asked
2.Students will be working on the measurement worksheet.
3.Students will be looking for something in the classroom that represent one of the measurement they learned today.
 

E. Accommodations (Differentiated Instruction)-

1.Give more time to the students if it is needed
2.Help out the students that need help building their gallon man.
3. Have extra set of practice for the ones that finish early.
4.Uses computer programs for the advance students while the rest of the class finish their activity.
 

F. Checking for understanding-

Provide students with math problems that involved measurement. Like a recipe
 

G. Closure-

1.Ask the students, Who can tell me something that we learn today.
2.After some answers, remark some important points in today's lesson.
