A WebQuest for 4th Grade (Measurement)
The race is on. You will race to learn as much as you can about measuring distance. Each lap you complete will further your knowledge of measuring. Will you successfully reach the checkered flag?
You will "race" your way through the course by completing the activities found at each of the "laps." Some laps are at the computer; some are at your desk. There are seven laps. Each lap that you complete will allow you to gain and test your knowledge of customary lengths.
Are you ready to start your engines?
Lap 2. Cruise on over to the computer and the FunBrain.com website to measure some lines.
Lap 3.Time for a pit stop at Quia. Use what you know about
measurement vocabulary to complete the Matching, F
Lap 5. Get ready. Get set. It's time for Lots of Lengths.
Lap 6. Really test your measuring skills. Measure at least 10 items in your classroom. Write the item name your estimation of its measurement, and then your actual measurement. Be sure to put all team members’ name on your paper. Teachers: Measurement Tally Sheet.
Measurement is an important life skill that real people use in the real world each and every day. You are more capable at measuring real objects, estimating measurements, using correct units of measurement and truly understanding measurements after completing, “Go, The Distance!”
