This is an activity that models the operation of a seismograph, a tool used to measure the size of earthquakes.
In this math lesson, learners apply the concepts of ratio and proportion to determine the length of the Statue of Liberty's torch-bearing arm.
In this fun hands-on activity, learners whip up a batch of cyber-dough (play dough) using math for measurements.
In this math activity, learners create their own units of measurement by making noodle rulers. Learners practice estimating and measuring objects using the noodle rulers .
In this activity, learners get hands-on experience with ratios and scaling while making their own jewelry out of recycled plastic containers.
In this activity, learners confront their perceptions of gravity in the solar system.
In this math lesson, learners explore the concept of using units to measure length. Learners first read "How Big is a Foot" by Rolf Myller and learn about units.
In this activity, learners model the gravitational fields of planets on a flexible surface.
In this demonstration, learners compare the relative sizes and masses of scale models of the planets as represented by fruits and other foods.
In this math activity, learners use non-standard measurement (paces) to find the distance from one point to another. Learners practice estimating and measuring distances .
Millions of organisms can live in and around a body of water.
This is an activity about lung capacity. Learners will measure their own lung capacity using a homemade spirometer.
In this activity, learners measure and calculate the amount of cubic feet various containers contain. Next, learners investigate cubic feet per second (cps), by carrying jugs in one second.
Straws and pipe cleaners are terrific materials for building models of pyramids and cubes.
In this indoor or outdoor water activity, learners pour water from small cups to large cups and containers. In doing so, they discover water takes the shape of its container.
In this activity, learners use their feet to estimate distances. Learners calculate the distance of one step in centimeters by measuring 10 steps at a time to reduce measurement error.
In this activity, learners investigate whether more people are squares or rectangles. People with similarly sized heights and arm spans are classified as squares.
Create a “Find Someone” list, with about 10 items, each containing a shape, number, or measurement. Can you find someone in the group with hair about 4 inches long? Someone wearing parallel lines?
This activity (located on page 2 of PDF) introduces learners to the real size of animals using nonstandard measurement.
