I liked the sequencing graphic at the end.
(Sorry, as a Grade 5 teacher, I did fast forward much of your discussion)
But I am planning on asking students, “How many square centimetres is their desk?”
A) Direct Comparison: – provide a single cubed cm square for them.
B) Indirect Comparison: – provide each student one (4cm x 5cm) Postit note.
– provide each student with 4 more postits.
C) Direct Measure: – as a class cover one desktop
– assess how they deal with new information
D) Indirect Measure: – *since desks are not the same, use their rulers to calculate square centimetres.
I love listening for leading questions to draw from students their thinking.
