I teach high school inclusive ed, and it is the reason I started designing my own resources in the first place. Most of my kids are working at an early elementary level but are high school aged. So much of the content to teach the key literacy and numeracy skills is packaged in a childish graphic design. Don’t get me wrong, there are BEAUTIFUL resources out there. But when you are a high school students in a class with your same aged peers, you really don’t want your materials to have cute frogs in top hats on them. So my resources have a simple, clean, minimalist design that works for all ages.
Our measurement unit for Area, Perimeter and Volume does just that. It includes 49 print and go, no prep area, perimeter and volume practice sheets. Each sheet has an answer key. Some sheets are in centimetres, but most are unitless. This will allow the teacher to define the units and have them be used in American classrooms. just as easily as Canadian classrooms.
Every traditional worksheet has a hands-on, interactive extension activity idea with its own supporting handout. The activities require little to no prep as well. Students will use materials commonly found around the school (or home if you are covid home learning!) to deepen their understanding of the key concepts.
Printable instruction reference posters are included to help teach the concept of volume, area, perimeter and area of irregular shapes. Each poster comes in versions with centimetres and inches. For my low incidence students I create a resource binder of reference materials for them. So that when they are working on a problem they can go to their reference binder, find the reference printable that outlines the concept and algorithm and use it to solve their work.
I always start with the perimeter package, before moving into area. Then we move onto the area and perimeter package, which also includes area of irregular shapes. We then move into the volume package to wrap up out unit.
The unit also includes an interactive editable area, perimeter and volume jeopardy game that can be used as a unit review or just another fun, interactive way to practice key skills. There is also a summative unit test included if needed.
