This week we started Unit 4, our first geometry unit of the year. Our classroom has been covered with rulers and yard sticks and meter sticks as the students have been busy measuring things around our classroom.
This week we have been working to:
Review the lengths of units of measure
Use U.S. standard and metric units to accurately measure length
Estimate lengths based on common units
Determine when estimates or exact measurements are needed
Find perimeter using standard units
Recognize and explain possible sources of measurement error
