**Lesson One: Math: Measurements: History of Measurements**

Teacher: Amy Williams

Length: 19:32

Hello Earth Schoolers! In this lesson Teacher Amy will explain all about how measurements were used in history. We’ll look at units of measurement that are more common like inches, feet, and yards, and we’ll also learn about units of measurements that we may not have heard of before like hands, spans, paces, and cubits. Teacher Amy will take us all the way back to ancient times and show us how all of these measuring methods came to be, and how they were originally used before things became more standardized and consistent. Next, we will get out our main lesson books and draw the human body so we can label some of the different measurements we learned about.

- Measurements
- Inches, feet, yards
- Hands, spans, paces, cubits
- Colored pencil drawing
- Human form drawing

*Member Feedback: “These facts about all the old measurements are so interesting. Explains why we have so many different ways to measure.”*

**Lesson Two: Math: Measurements: Bird House Measurements**

Teacher: Amy Williams

Length: 13:04

In this lesson Teacher Amy shows us how to plan and prepare to build a birdhouse using real accurate measurements. We’ll start with an image of the birdhouse we want to build and a wooden board, then we’ll consider how we could cut that board up to create the pieces that we need to make the birdhouse. We will practice using a ruler or yardstick to draw out our board, then we’ll get creative and try to figure out how we would make the pieces. This activity is meant to challenge our minds and help conceptualize the idea of finding the smaller pieces within the large one. At the very end of the video the accurate measurements are shown.

- Birdhouse
- Woodwork
- Blueprints
- Ruler and yardstick use
- Colored pencil drawing

*Member Feedback: “I like that this lesson gives students a chance to experiment with the measurements on their own without making them follow the exact dimensions at first. It gives everyone a chance to take their time understanding the material, and also encourages free creative fun!”*

**Lesson Three: Math: Measurements: House Building: Bat House**

Teacher: Amy Williams

Length: 34:13

In this lesson Teacher Amy shows us how to take a board and cut it up into the right shapes in order to assemble a bat house. Like previous lessons, we’ll start by drawing our board in our main lesson books, then we’ll look at how to cut out each piece into the correct sized pieces of wood. This time we’ll be focusing on accuracy of measurements and dimensions. If you would like to fully assemble your bat house you will need the following: an old piece of lumber, a handsaw, a hammer, spiral nails, and a drill.

**Lesson Four: Math: Measurements: Create Your Own Measurements**

Teacher: Amy Williams

Length: 17:04

Is this lesson we will be creating our own measurements using similar methods used in history. Teacher Amy will show us how to figure out our base measurement, and then we will go around our homes and measure various things. Depending on how big or small your base measurement is, you might get a bigger number when you measure items. Teacher Amy demonstrates different ways that we can use our unit of measurement and how we can use extra addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division steps to speed up the measuring process of larger items. We’ll end this lesson with a colored pencil drawing of our base unit of measurement, and a list of all the things we measured.
