Description

Overview:
Students measure the length of a pea pod and a carrot in non-standard vegetable units (a pea seed) and discuss the advantages and disadvantages of measuring using non-standard measures. Students then practice measuring length of classroom objects to develop the skills of measurement accuracy and precision. In the outdoor garden, students measure three different fruits, vegetables, and/or herbs that are growing there. They convert their measurements between different units of measure in the metric system. For example: The tomato is 14 cm long or 140 mm long. Finally, students research the health benefits of the fruits and vegetables they measured and taste these healthy foods if they wish.
