Part of Lesson Plan: Measurement Calculations- Mike Mederos
Activity Overview / Details
I show the attached video clip, when finished I ask students several leading questions about measuring and accuracy. Examples of questions are:
Is this an acceptable mistake?
Is it a possibility that the rulers were wrong?
What could be done to have ensured that this would not have happened?

- Friends-Measurement Mistakes [ Watch Video ] [ Download Original Video ] This anticipatory set uses a clip from the TV show Friends. In the clip, is an example of what happens when projects are not measured accurately. Several other examples of projects mistakes can be used to encourage accuracy in measuring materials, projects and land. Asking questions to focus students on the importance of accuracy is the key to reinforcing this objective.
