Lesson Plans for 4th grade Math
Objectives: TEKS 
§ 111.16. Mathematics, Grade 4. (11) Measurement. The student applies measurement concepts. The student is expected to estimate and measure to solve problems involving length (including perimeter) and area. The student uses measurement tools to measure capacity/volume and weight/mass. The student is expected to: (A) estimate and use measurement tools to determine length (including perimeter), area, capacity and weight/mass using standard units SI (metric) and customary. 
Resources/Materials: 

Instructional Strategies: 
Interactive Instructionused when students come up to the doc camera and work practice problems. Experiential learningThe students are participating in interactive learning by creating a grid activity sheet to prove perimeter and area. 
Anticipatory Set: 

Purpose/Input: 

Procedure/Guided Practice: 

Check for Understanding: 

Independent Practice: 
The teacher will model the Marilyn Burns activity.

Bloom’s Incorporated: 
Comprehension “How do you think I can do to make my “great room” larger on my floor plan?” Analysis “What would happen if we measure the perimeter of a room incorrectly when ordering carpet ?” Evaluation “Do you think it is important to know how to measure perimeter?” 
Technology Implemented: 

Closure/Assessment 
Quiz on measurement problems 48 to 54 (handout)

Modifications: 
Allow the lower level students sufficient time to work on the quiz The higher level students, when they are finished with their work allow them to work on their perimeter puzzle (Display the Digits) 
Reflections: 
I enjoyed learning about the Marilyn Burns Math activity and am excited to learn more about Marilyn Burns. I enjoyed working on this lesson plan. I find it excited to create a lesson to teach my students. I think this is the best part of school. I was not sure how to create modifications on this lesson.
