This unit (consisting of 5 lessons) uses multiple materials and models to help students explore measurement. Students use objects, pictures, and symbols. Connections to children's literature, when appropriate, are incorporated into lessons. Students engage in measurement activities involving length, area, volume, time, and weight. Students practice measuring using standard and nonstandard units.
Students will model prices to 99 cents, compare amounts to prices, and count on from prices to find change.

Stars and Stripes Forever: Flag Facts for Flag Day
In this unit from EDSITEment, students learn what a symbol is while developing their understanding of how one particular symbol, the American Flag, plays an important role in the everyday lives of American citizens. An additional lesson, geared specifically to grade 2 students, focuses on the words and phrases contained within the Pledge of Allegiance. From this introductory page, teachers can access archival images needed to complete the unit.
Stories in Quilts
Heighten your students' awareness of how quilts tell stories that reflect the lives of the people who create them, and that record the cultural history of a particular place and time. Students will be able to understand how quilts and other cloth-based art forms are used to preserve family and community traditions and recognize that people of different countries and cultures use cloth-based art forms to pass down their traditions and history.
