Draw 1 millimeter on your paper using a ruler… what did you learn about millimeters from doing this?

Millimetres, Centimetres and Metres

Create large shapes on the floor using masking tape. Measure them by following your lines with string and then measuring the string using a metre stick.How would this measurement change if you used a different unit of measurement? m? cm? mm? Try each one!

Perimeter and Area- Rectangles Perimeter - The area around somethingPerimeter of a rectangle = l + l + w + w Area – the amount of space an object coversArea of a rectangle = length x width


Find the Perimeter

Perimeter of a rectangle = 2l + 2w or 2 (l + w) Create as many rectangles as you can with a perimeter of 20 cm page 66 in student workbook


Find the Area

Area of a rectangle = length x width

Pigs robert munsch

Megan is told to feed the pigs, but not to open the gate. She does of course, and the results are hilarious as the pigs help themselves to coffee and the newspaper at the breakfast table, follow Megan to school, and ride home by way of the school bus.


Constructed Response - Area

Complete the constructed response on page 11 of the student bookletA farmer has 100 m of fencing to make a pen for his pigs. He decides a rectangle would be the best shape.What are some possible sizes of pens he could make?How do the areas of the pens compare and what sizethey would recommend and why? What pen has the greatest area? What is special about this rectangle?


Find the perimeter and area of a classroom door, then come up with a concept for our “Spring” door.

Draw your door and list all the necessary materials and their measurements. Write your name at the top and enter it into the teacher inbox to deicide our “Spring has Sprung” door!

Capacity is used for measuring liquids or the containers that hold those liquidsIt is measured using millilitres (ml)or litres (L)

Order your containers from least to greatest…

What did you notice?




Capacity – Frayer Model


Capacity - Estimation

Mr. Franklin filled a bucket with water to clean his floor. Does the bucket probably hold 9 litres of water or 9 millilitres of water? Explain. Complete page 72 in workbook

This bottle is

1 L of water.

A millilitre is about 20 drops of water.


Capacity - Conversion

Complete page 17 of student booklet

To convert from litres (L) to millilitres (ml) you must multiply by 1 000

1 L = 1 000 ml

To convert from millilitres (ml) to litres (L) you must divide by 1 000

1 000 ml = 1 L
