J.D Davis, Year One
Davis – Addie Newcomer
Learning Objective/Exit Outcomes:
For students to demonstrate their understanding of measurement & their ability to estimate measurement.
MGSE2.MD.1 Measure the length of an object by selecting and using appropriate tools such as rulers, yardsticks, meter sticks, and measuring tapes.
MGSE2.MD.2 Measure the length of an object twice, using length units of different measurements; describe how the two measurements relate to the size of the unit chosen. Understand the relative size of units in different systems of measurement. For example, an inch is longer than a centimeter.
MGSE2.MD.3 Estimate lengths using units of inches, feet, centimeters, and meters.
ELAGSE2SL1 Participate in collaborative conversations with diverse partners about grade 2 topics and texts with peers and adults in small and larger groups.
- Follow agreed-upon rules for discussions (e.g., gaining the floor in respectful ways, listening to others with care, speaking one at a time about the topics and texts under discussion).
Math & ELA
Entire classroom & materials from the classroom
One student is chosen to turn around and not look while the rest of the class sets up the minefield. All other students are given 30 seconds to choose one item from around the classroom & put it in the path of the chosen student on their way to the end point. When it’s time for the chosen student to turn around, they must keep their eyes closed or wear a blindfold. The rest of the class has the very important job of guiding the chosen student through the minefield without touching anything through careful instructions given one at a time. To incorporate units of measurement and estimating measurement, each instruction given must include either inches or centimeters. The chosen student must move, “7 inches to the left,” “16 centimeters straight,” “one 8 inch step with your right foot,” until they reach the end point. Each classmate takes turns giving one instruction at a time.
