Lesson Plans: Integrating Math and Science
Unit Title: Property Matters
Grade Level: 3rd

NCTM Standards: Grades 3–5 Expectations: In grades 3–5 all students should–
• understand such attributes as length, area, weight, volume, and size of angle and select the appropriate type of unit for measuring each attribute;
• understand the need for measuring with standard units and become familiar with standard units in the customary and metric systems;
• carry out simple unit conversions, such as from centimeters to meters, within a system of measurement;

Have them work in groups and use the wooden numbers to create their own problems that show the conversion from percentages to decimals. Have students demonstrate some of the problems they came up with for the class. Have the students discuss any problems that they had in converting percentages into decimals. Next, have the students create numbers that have decimals and have them work with their groups to make percentages.
Assessment: Have the student

Diverse Learners: Use smaller numbers and more manipulative to model conversions for students with learning disabilities. Model more of the more complex conversions using the manipulatives. Instead of having them do the more complex ones, assess them using smaller and less complicated numbers.

Day Three: What’s does that have that the other one doesn’t?
Objectives: Students will identify what makes some objects heavier than others.
Students will classify objects based on the observations of different objects.
Materials: small tree branches, half freshly cut and the other half dried out, relatively the same size and length. Other objects of similar shape and size but different weights; Pencils and paper, charts
Science Process: Observation, classification, inference, and prediction
Anticipatory Set: Take a look at the tree branches I have in my hand. Which one do you think is heavier and which one is lighter? It’s hard to tell. Today,
