This unit is about the relationship between area and volume. Students begin by exploring the concept of volume through hands on real world activities. They explore the formula for volume and review the formulas for area and perimeter. Students will classify and organize geometric shapes based on their attributes. They will explore generalizations for triangles and quadrilaterals through graphic organizers. Finally students will solve problems based on capacity, weight and length using the metric and customary systems. Students will use conversions to answer questions.
I have broken down each TEK into Learning Targets to make it easier to track student progress. There are 7 skills in this unit! Each learning target contains intervention and enrichment skills. A student data sheet is included for students to reflect on their own learning for the unit. A teacher tracking sheet is included to make small group instruction easier! Each day contains objective, learning targets, materials, whole class teaching activity, guided math activity and closure with an exit ticket and answer key for most days.
Whole Class teaching in this unit contains:
- Teaching Point
- Active Engagement
- Link to Ongoing Learning
Games and Engagement Activities in this unit include:
5.6A Math Huddle
5.6A Exploration Stations
5.6C SCOOT: Volume Of Cubes And Rectangles
5.6C SCOOT: V = l x w x h
5.4H Mystery Challenge: The Bandit and the Dragon Egg
5.5A Anticipation Guide
5.5A Guess My Rule
5.5A Minute 2 Win It
5.5A Agree or Disagree Lines
5.7A SCOOT: Conversions
5.7A Scavenger Hunt: Conversions
This unit is designed to print and go! I keep mine in a binder. You can put each day and all of the materials for that day in one sheet protector.
I hope this unit helps you with Guided Math by providing a whole class teach, active engagement, guided math activities and exit tickets for almost everyday- you can't beat $1.50 per day for a complete unit!
