Grade 4 - Measurement

Standard 4.MT.2 - Find the area of a shape using unit squares.

Included Skills:

Measurement Relationships

• describe, through investigation, the relationship between various units of length (i.e., millimetre, centimetre, decimetre, metre, kilometre);

• select and justify the most appropriate standard unit (i.e., millimetre, centimetre, decimetre, metre, kilometre) to measure the side lengths and perimeters of various polygons;

• determine, through investigation, the relationship between the side lengths of a rectangle and its perimeter and area (Sample problem: Create a variety of rectangles on a geoboard. Record the length, width, area, and perimeter of each rectangle on a chart. Identify relationships.);

• pose and solve meaningful problems that require the ability to distinguish perimeter and area (e.g., "I need to know about area when I cover a bulletin board with construction paper. I need to know about perimeter when I make the border.");

• compare and order a collection of objects, using standard units of mass (i.e., gram, kilogram) and/or capacity (i.e., millilitre, litre);

• determine, through investigation, the relationship between grams and kilograms (Sample problem: Use centimetre cubes with a mass of one gram, or other objects of known mass, to balance a one-kilogram mass.);

• determine, through investigation, the relationship between millilitres and litres (Sample problem: Use small containers of different known capacities to fill a one-litre container.);

• select and justify the most appropriate standard unit to measure mass (i.e., milligram, gram, kilogram) and the most appropriate standard unit to measure the capacity of a container (i.e., millilitre, litre);

• solve problems involving the relationship between years and decades, and between decades and centuries (Sample problem: How many decades old is Canada?);

• compare, using a variety of tools (e.g., geoboard, patterns blocks, dot paper), two-dimensional shapes that have the same perimeter or the same area (Sample problem: Draw, using grid paper, as many different rectangles with a perimeter of 10 units as you can make on a geoboard.).
