We will begin by discussing the differences between the different units of measurement and their abbreviations. As a class we will measure objects in the room using different units of measurement (inches, feet, yards, centimeters, etc). The students will then complete the work sheet found here: http://www.edhelper.com/math/length_weight_fg2104.htm

We will then discuss how to plot information on a line graph. We will plot the number of students in the class who bring their lunches to school. After we have a made a line graph as a class the students will do the worksheet found at the following website:
