Grade 3 - Measurement

Standard 3.MT.1 - Find the area of a shape using unit squares.

Included Skills:

Attributes, Units, and Measurement Sense

• estimate, measure, and record length, height, and distance, using standard units (i.e., centimetre, metre, kilometre) (Sample problem: While walking with your class, stop when you think you have travelled one kilometre.);

• draw items using a ruler, given specific lengths in centimetres (Sample problem: Draw a pencil that is 5 cm long);

• read time using analogue clocks, to the nearest five minutes, and using digital clocks (e.g., 1:23 means twenty-three minutes after one o'clock), and represent time in 12-hour notation;

• estimate, read (i.e., using a thermometer), and record positive temperatures to the nearest degree Celsius (i.e., using a number line; using appropriate notation) (Sample problem: Record the temperature outside each day using a thermometer, and compare your measurements with those reported in the daily news.);

• identify benchmarks for freezing, cold, cool, warm, hot, and boiling temperatures as they relate to water and for cold, cool, warm, and hot temperatures as they relate to air (e.g., water freezes at 0�C; the air temperature on a warm day is about 20�C, but water at 20�C feels cool);

• estimate, measure, and record the perimeter of two-dimensional shapes, through investigation using standard units (Sample problem: Estimate, measure, and record the perimeter of your notebook.);

• estimate, measure (i.e., using centimetre grid paper, arrays), and record area (e.g., if a row of 10 connecting cubes is approximately the width of a book, skip counting down the cover of the book with the row of cubes [i.e., counting 10, 20, 30,...] is one way to determine the area of the book cover);

• choose benchmarks for a kilogram and a litre to help them perform measurement tasks;

• estimate, measure, and record the mass of objects (e.g., can of apple juice, bag of oranges, bag of sand), using the standard unit of the kilogram or parts of a kilogram (e.g., half, quarter);

• estimate, measure, and record the capacity of containers (e.g., juice can, milk bag), using the standard unit of the litre or parts of a litre (e.g., half, quarter).
