Problem-Solving Lesson Plan

Lesson Focus and Summary
The focus of the lesson is to teach 2nd grade students how to measure lengths of objects and the various units used in the measurement. Precisely, the aim will be to assist students to learn how to solve problems requiring determination of straight lengths of objects. The units of measurement that will be used are meters, centimeters, feet and inches. Since the class consists of students with varying learning needs, a differentiated approach will be used in the presentation, engagement and expression of the learning content. Last, the students will be required to do an extension activity in order to increase their ability to measure lengths COE Lesson Plan Template Paper.

Student and Classroom Factors/Grouping:
The class has students with varying learning needs. Therefore, they will be categorized into the following groups, based on their learning needs:

Early finishers – The group will consist of students with high level of support from parents and those with a higher grade in math performance level
Students with special needs – Tier 3 RTI for Math, include learning disabled, emotionally disabled
English Language Learners – One student is English Language Learner
Requiring additional support – The group consists of the students that are one year below grade level in math and reading performance and with low parental involvement
National/State Learning Standards:
The American Common Core Standards require that the students should eventually be able to determine the differences between meters, centimeters, feet and inches and their relationships. Also, they should be able to apply the units in the measurement of the lengths of objects. The students should also be able to determine the differences in lengths between two objects.

Specific Learning Targets:
The first target of the lesson is to make sure that the students differentiate between centimeters meters. Second, the students should be able to measure and estimate the lengths, widths and heights of real-world objects in the two units. To meet the Common Core Standards, there will be a need for additional lessons focusing on inches and feet and differences between lengths of objects.

Anticipatory Set

The following materials will be used during the lesson:

A white Board
Measuring tapes
Construction sheets with drawn objects
The lesson will start with reminding the students to the about the units of measurement and tools that had been introduced during the previous lesson. Introduction to meters and centimeters and to the tools of measurement such as rulers measuring tapes and meter sticks had been done during the previous lesson. After the reminder, I will inform the students that we are going to apply the units and tools in the measurement of objects.

Multiple Means of Representation

I will make demonstration through using a ruler and a measurement tape how to measure the length and width of the white board.
I will write down the sizes of width and length on the white board using a
I will demonstrate the measurement of the length of the marker using a ruler and record it on the white board.
I will measure the length and width of a tablet and record it.
Students groups engagement

Students with special needs – I will repeat the measurements of the objects several times while confirming whether or not they understand COE Lesson Plan Template Paper.
Requiring additional support – I will confirm whether they understand or not and repeat the measurements in case of a need.
Early finishers – I will ask such students to proceed through practicing measurement of their own tools, such as pencils.
English Language Learners – I will use simplified language, both spoken and written, in the description of the measurement processes and units.
Multiple Means of Engagement

I will ask the students to measure their properties such as pencils and record the sizes using the necessary units.
Together with the students, we will use measurement tape to measure the length of the class door. I will ask them to tell me how long it is. I will repeat with measurement of the width of the door.
I will involve the students in the measurement of the length and width of the class using a measurement tape and ask them to tell me the number of units.
For around 10 minutes, I will allow students to play a game on a tablet, which requires the students to answer questions such as estimating the length of the door and pencil. The students are given several options for length estimates to choose from through clicking. After clicking, the program informs them whether they have passed or failed.
Students groups engagement

Students with special needs – I will allow increased time for such students to play the games on the tablets, in addition to assisting them to measure and determine the lengths of objects such as pencils.
Students requiring additional support – I will involve them in repeated measurement of objects such as class door until they understand. I will also allow them to play the games.
Early finishers – I will ask them to measure more objects within the classroom, such as the heights and lengths of seats.
English Language Learners – I will take time to use simplified language on the student and make sure that she understands.

Multiple Means of Expression
I will give every student a construction sheet with similar drawn objects.
I will ask the students to measure and write down the lengths, widths and heights of the objects in either meters or centimeters.
Students groups engagement

Students with special needs – I will keep on repeating demonstrations for the measurement of objects to such students in case I find that they do not understand.
Students requiring additional support – I will confirm that they understand how to measure lengths and in case of a need, repeat the demonstration using the white board.
Early finishers – I will mark their answers and point out the need to correct any mistakes.
English Language Learners – I will confirm that she understands what the width, length and height are and how to write down figures COE Lesson Plan Template Paper.
Extension Activity and/or Homework

I will give the students a homework activity to measure the lengths and widths of several items shown on the Appendix. The items will be printed on an A4 paper. The extension activity will help to increase the understanding of the students on the units of measurement (Centimeters and meters) and how to apply measurements on objects.


When preparing the lesson plan, I realized that all the required content cannot be taught to the student in one lesson. I also felt that applying the meters and centimeters as well as feet and inches in the same lesson is likely to confuse the students. Thus, I decided to prepare another lesson for application of inches and feet in measurement. I felt that the lesson plan that I prepared would be effective in enabling the students to understand how to apply the measurement knowledge in the real world. That is the reason why I included the measurement of the real objects such as the classroom. I realized that differentiation is necessary since it will help to facilitate understanding by the students with learning issues or difficulties. The use of the tablet will be very helpful in facilitating higher order thinking and conceptualization of the study topic among the students.

As demonstrated in the use of the tablets in this lesson, the latest media technologies can very helpful in supporting learning among the students, both in class and outside the class room. Tablets, laptops and other related technologies can be used to run programs for games meant to enhance the knowledge of the students, as demonstrated in the lesson. As Moore and Hansen (19) explain, such games are very supportive to learning especially among the students with special needs. The students can also use such technologies to enhance learning at home COE Lesson Plan Template Paper.

As Bray, Brown and Green (17) explain, communication channels and technologies such as email, phones and computers can be used to corroborate with the parents in order to facilitate learning among the students. Through the channels, the teacher can explain to the parents how a student needs to be supported and the necessary materials. Collaboration with other professionals can also be very helpful especially in supporting differentiation. As Bateman and Bateman (106) explain, for instance, the students with special needs may require additional support from another professional in order to enhance the ability to learn. Sometimes, corroboration may be required with teachers supporting ENL students.
