As a result of this lesson, students will be able to:

 use informal units of measure to objects placing them in correct order of tallest to smallest.
 use informal units of measure to measure a classmate.

Teacher’s Prior Preparation/Organisation:

 objects for mat activity with streamers
 objects for activity 2 organised with streamers and scissors
 cards for activity 3

LESSON DELIVERY Resources/References
(Lesson content, structure, strategies & Key Questions):
Motivation and Lesson Introduction:
 Children to sit in a circle on the mat in the centre of the circle is a
hoop filled with objects.
 Teacher is to ask one student to find the tallest object in the hoop
and place out of the hoop at one end of the mat, providing streamers
to help with measuring.
 The next student is then asked to find the next tallest object in the
hoop and place next to the other object measuring with a streamer
that its smaller than the other object already taken out of the hoop.
 Continuing to all objects are out of hoop and in correct order
 Explain to the students the following 3 activities listed below.

Lesson Development:
Activity 1- Measuring Friends Teacher directed
 Working in pairs students measuring their friends with informal units
of measurement, they will use pop sticks
 They are to investigate how many pop sticks is the length of their
 With one student laying on the floor and the other placing pop sticks See saw
next to them.
 Once they have placed out all the pop sticks they are to count how
many and write the number on a white board.
 Take a photo of the student lying next to the pop sticks and
whiteboard and post to see saw.

Activity 2- Measuring other items- Pre Service teacher directed

 Working with up to 4 students at a time.
 They will be given 3 random objects, coloured streamer and scissors
 They are to measure the object and cut its length using a streamer to See saw
all objects.
 Based off the measuring of the streamers, place the objects in order
of tallest to smallest
 Once finished take a photo and post to seesaw

Activity 3- Number snap- parent help

 2 lots of pairs
 In pairs students are to play snap to build number recognition
 To extend some students they are to play 1 up and 1 down of the
If students are not at an activity they are playing on mat, drawing table or
block corner

Lesson Closure:
 Everyone sitting on the mat, teacher to pick 2 students who are sitting

the students standing up to agree or disagree with the statement,
once correct they are able to wash their hands for fruit.
 Continuing this dismissal till all students are off the mat.

1. Are they able to list objects heights in correct order using streamers?
Looking at what is posted from see saw.

2. Are they able to use informal units of measurement to measure their See saw
classmates correctly and are they able to state the number correctly?
Looking at what is posted from see saw.
