Grade 5 - Measurement and Data
Standard 5.MD.1.4 - Practice finding the appropriate weight of various objects. Understand the approximate scale of different metric units.
Students will be expected to demonstrate an understanding of capacity by • describing the relationship between millilitre (mL) and litre (L) units • selecting and justifying referents for millilitre (mL) and litre (L) units • estimating capacity using referents for millilitre (mL) and litre (L) • measuring and recording capacity (mL or L)
• Performance Indicators - M04.01 Demonstrate that 1000 millilitres is equivalent to one litre by filling a one-litre container using a combination of smaller containers. - M04.02 Provide a referent for one litre, and explain the choice. - M04.03 Provide a referent for one millilitre, and explain the choice. - M04.04 Determine the capacity unit of a given referent. - M04.05 Estimate the capacity of a given container using personal referents. - M04.06 Determine the capacity of a given container using materials that take the shape of the inside of the container (e.g., a liquid, rice, sand, beads), and explain the strategy.
