Converting units of time
Title of Lesson


Subject Area (s) Math- Measurement and Data Analysis

Grade 4
Grade Level
4.MDA. 1 Convert measurements within a single system of
Curriculum Standards measurement, customary (i.e. in, ft., yd., oz., lb., sec., min.,
hr.) or metric (i.e., cm, m, km, g, kg, mL, L)

To begin the lesson the teacher will show students a

Description and StoryBots video about time. The teacher will discuss with
Background Information students the importance of knowing the time of day.

As the teacher presents notes using a PowerPoint and the

white board, the students will take notes in their math

The teacher will guide students through guided examples of

converting time. He/she will use real life examples to make
the information relevant to students. The teacher will give
students an example to try on their own and go over the
answer together.

The students will then complete 4 questions independently.

Once the students have completed this assignment the
teacher will collect the papers and go over the answers.

The students will complete an assessment independently

with 80% accuracy.

To close the lesson, the teacher will review the units of time
with students and how time is used in everyday life. The
teacher will also assign homework.

Lesson Objectives Students will be able to accurately convert larger units of
time to smaller units of time (days, hr., min., sec.).

Varying Objectives for Students that are struggling with the material will work in
Individuals Needs small groups with classmates and the teacher to solve
(Differentiated Instruction-content; problems for converting units of time.
Process; Product; or Environment)

The teacher will provide more challenging material for

students that have mastered the concept such as
converting smaller units to larger units (i.e. 208 minutes to 3
hours and 28 minutes).

To benefit students learning English, as well as visual

learners, the teacher will provide charts and figures during
problem solving.

Statement of Purpose It is important for students to understand the relationships

between smaller units of time and larger units of time (i.e.
how many minutes do I have until I need to be to school,
how long will I have to finish my homework, etc.).

Materials and Resources PowerPoint
Marker boards
StoryBots Video YouTube

The teacher will discuss with students the importance of

Anticipatory Set time and how it is used in everyday life.


To find out what students already know, the teacher show

Pre-assessment students a video and discuss with them what units of time
they saw. He/she will ask students how they use time each
day and to describe the times that they are familiar with.
The teacher will model the steps to convert units of time.
Teacher Modeling or During this process he/she will think aloud so that students
Demonstration can follow the process.
The teacher will guide student through example problems
Guided Practice on the board. He/she will ask to work on an example
problem while the teacher monitors progress and checks
for understand and misconceptions.
In the process of direct instruction, the teacher will often
Checking for ask students to recite various conversions of units of time

Revised Fall 2013 ACEI/NAEYC 2010 Standards

Understanding During the independent practice, the teacher will ask
students to use a think aloud to check their thinking
process. The teacher will frequently ask students about
units of time (i.e. how many seconds in a minute, how many
minutes in an hour, etc.).

Independent Practice The students will complete 4 questions independently.

To close the lesson, the teacher will review the material on
Closure converting units of time and reminding students of their
homework assignment.
The students will complete an assessment independently
Assessment with 80% accuracy.
(Give a description and attach (see attachment)
to lesson plan)
At home or in the classroom students can write their own
Extension Activities problems for converting units of time, tackle more complex
problems for converting time such as smaller units to larger
unit problems (i.e. 360 minutes to hours), or complete a
writing prompt outlining their day in which they converts
units of time.

The teacher will use the SmartBoard to display a video and

a PowerPoint lesson.

Connection Across the In this lesson, the teacher mentioned that the relationships
Curriculum between this lesson on converting units of time was
connected to the unit in Science on day and night. (when
learning about day and night, students will learn that it
takes 24 hours for the Earth to rotate/spin.)

To incorporate art the teacher could have students create a

foldable for units of time.

To incorporate P.E. The teacher could ask students to

complete a scoot activity in which they will be in groups of
four and each stduents completes a question on the desk in
front of them. When the teacher says scoot, the students
will move to the next station and answer the next question.
They will continue this process until all of the questions
have been answered.

To incorporate health, the teacher could create a mini

lesson on how many average hours a fourth grade students
should have. The students can convert these hours to
minutes, and then minutes to seconds.


Describe the strengths of your instructional techniques, strategies and classroom management.
Describe the strengths of student engagement.

I feel that some of the strengths during this lesson would be
Strengths the use of think alouds, making personal connects, and
student achievement. The teacher used think alouds to
describe the process of solving the problems. Not only did
this help students understand the process, but it also
allowed them to become comfortable with using think
alouds on their own when describing their solving process.
The teacher provided many examples of personal
connections for the students which makes it relevant to
their lives. Overall, the student achieved the goal for the
lesson and seemed to have a good understanding of the

One of the weaknesses of this lesson would be the

Weaknesses management of time. The example problems adsorbed more
time than originally planned which cut into time for
independent practice.
Classroom management is something that I have been
working to improve. I feel that in this specific lesson, I could
have used proximity more to minimize nonacademic
discussion and/or behavior issues.

If I could teach this lesson again, I would allow for more

Suggestions for overall time for the lesson. I would allot more time of the
Improvement lesson to allowing students to work independently, so that I
could watch the process in which they used to solve the
