Grams, Kilograms, and Liters Common Core Third Grade 5 day Unit

100% Common Core Aligned This unit is designed to correlate with the third grade common core standard MCC3.MD.2: (Can be adapted to other grade levels) Measure and Estimate Liquid Volumes and Masses of Objects using standard units of grams, kilograms, and liters. This is a 5 day unit in which each lesson contains an essential question, activating strategy, teaching strategy, summarizer, lesson resources, and more. The unit also includes vocabulary posters, an assessment, and homework pages for each lesson. It is truly all you need to teach this standard. Day One; Understanding Grams and Kilograms: Includes weighing items on a scale, understanding that a gram weighs about a paper clip and a kg is about the weight of a dictionary. Students will have practicing measuring grams. Day Two: When to use grams and kilograms. This lesson focuses more on estimating how many grams and kilograms an item may be and when to use grams and when to use kilograms when measuring items. This lesson contains a set of 24 task cards, recording sheet, and answer sheet. Day Three: Liters. Students will be introduced to liters and see how much liquid volume a liter contains. Students will decide if objects contain less than a liter, more than a liter, and about a liter. Day Four: Word problems involving grams, kilograms, and liters. Students will solve word problems using these measurements. They will be asked to solve the problems using numbers, pictures, and words. Day Five; Assessment. Students will be given an assessment on this standard.

Density, volume, and weight: comparison and calculation . Gallery walk Sci/Math

This was one of the best review density lessons I did with my middle school science class on how the density of a material doesn't change no matter the size or weight it has. It was also a good way to tie into and review finding the volume of a rectangular prism. Included 9 slide powerpoint (7 slides to print and hang on the wall or in a station) 2 pages for student data collection and questions 2 pages Teacher answer key Directions Print out the 7 slides from the powerpoint hang on wall or use at stations. Each slide provides the density for each 2 metals. (students copy this down) They then find out the metal type using the key on the student handout sheet. Each slide has 2 different size cubes on it, students must find the volume for each cube using the measurements provided. Once finding the volume for the cube, students must then find out how much it would weigh using the density of the metal from the slide. Then they must decide if the metals where both melted which one would float on the other. Or for the slide that is the same metal just different size cubes that they have the same density. There are 3 followup questions on density to get them thinking. I didn't let my students use calculators for this activity and we reviewed and discussed the answers as a class at the end. Measurements in inches and pounds. takes 50-60min for my 6th graders to complete
