Entry Level 2 – Lesson Plan 2 (Scales)

Aim
To recognise and use familiar metric units
To use measure using simple scales

Learning Outcomes
At the end of the session, the learner will be able to:
- reinforce finding missing numbers in sequences of numbers
- use simple scales to measure to the nearest labelled division
- know common metric units of measure for length, weight, capacity and temperature
- estimate values of measurements of everyday items in length, weight, capacity and temperature
Aspirations
- For learners to feel confident about using simple scales to measure with
- For learners to gain some understanding of what grams, kilograms, litres, centimetres, metres and degrees Centigrade are used
for

DIFFERENTIATION:
MUST participate in first two activities (be able to find at least five missing numbers in Activity 1 and identify at least three correct
measurements in Activity 2)
SHOULD find all the missing responses in Activities 1 and 2
COULD start to appreciate what length/ weight / capacity/ temperatures of everyday items are likely to be

RESOURCES:
Cards for Activities 1, 2 and 3, mini whiteboards, marker pens, flipchart paper, glue sticks, calculators, rulers, measuring tapes,
simple measuring jug, item to measure which is an exact number of cm less than 30cm, item to measure which has a length
equalling a multiple of 10cm, amount of liquid to measure which has a capacity measureable to nearest labelled division

strategies
Coverage and range:
    Recognise and use familiar measures                                                    Pair work and small group work,
differentiated activities
    Recognise sequences of numbers

    Use simple scales and measures to the nearest labelled division.

Process:
    Sorting out which pieces of information are needed

    Disregarding irrelevant information

    Thinking through a plan for solving a problem

    Selecting appropriate mathematical procedures to solve a problem

    Applying mathematical procedures correctly

    Laying out work clearly

    Choosing how to check answers

    Communicating solutions to problems, either verbally or by writing down them down so
that they make sense

    Deciding how solutions inform a recommendation

- ask them to decide what the reading on each scale                            scales
is
- ask them to choose appropriate cards to show the
readings they have decided upon and to glue these

Use open questions to help develop understanding
(DIFFERENTIATION: there are multiple answer cards
available to enable learners at higher levels to e.g.
choose 49 rather than 50)
