2 Vocabulary customary: system of measurement used in the United States that includes units for measuring length, capacity, and weight capacity: the maximum amount that can be contained by an object; often refers to a measurement of liquid kilogram (kg): the metric unit for weight, equal to 1000 grams (g) liter (L): metric unit for measuring liquid volume, equal to 1000 milliliters (ml) metric: system of measurement based on multiples of ten that is used throughout the world pound (lb): the customary unit of measurement for weight, equal to 16 ounces (oz) volume: the amount of space an object occupies measured in cubic units weight: a measurement indicating how heavy something is per pound, and the steer weighs 770 pounds (carcass weight), the value of the steer would be \$1155. Market prices are determined by how much of a product is available for sale, how much people are willing and able to pay for the product, and other supply and demand factors. Wheat farmers sell their wheat by the bushel. Like beef, the price of wheat per bushel depends on the current market value. Oats, barley, feed corn, rye, and soybeans are also sold by the bushel. However, the seed the farmer purchases for replanting is priced by the pound. Garden seeds and herbs are sold by the ounce because most gardeners do not need large quantities. Activity Procedures Activity 1: Shopping 1. Set up four or five work stations. Supply each with a different kind of produce, a grocery flyer showing prices for each kind of produce, and a small scale that registers ounces and pounds (diet scales or kitchen scales). 2. Divide the class into four or five groups, and assign each group to a work station. Review estimating, and discuss why it might be useful in a trip to the grocery store. Share background material. Hand out the Produce Shopping activity sheet. 3. Have students estimate the weight and cost of the produce to the best of their ability and record their estimates on the activity sheet. Then have students weigh the produce and calculate the cost of the produce based on the prices listed in the grocery ads. Be sure to discuss how to use the type of scale you have provided. If you have metric scales, record these weights or make the conversion with the students. 4. Ask the groups to move from station to station until each group has visited each station. 5. Students should complete the totals on the activity sheet. 6. If all the totals are not the same, ask students to discuss possible reasons for the discrepancy (weights and costs may have been rounded up or down). Activity 2: Weight and Capacity Shopping 1. Set up five work stations, and supply each with the following: Station 1: gallon jug, quart container, liter container, liquid measuring cup, and bucket of water Station 2: quart container, liter container, pint container, liquid measuring cup, and bucket of water Station 3: box of cereal, popcorn, scale and liquid measuring cup Station 4: 2 measuring cups, 1 liquid and 1 dry, and unpopped popcorn (more than 1 cup) Station 5: Measure and pour out onto a piece of paper: 1 cup of unpopped popcorn, 1 cup of cereal, 1 teaspoon of salt, and 1 tablespoon of cinnamon. Add a glass of milk to this estimation station; measure and note how much milk you put in the glass. Utah Agriculture in the Classroom 2 utah.agclassroom.org

3 Customary units and equivalents: In order to convert between units in the customary system, it is necessary to either memorize equivalents or use a chart like the one below for reference. 1 tablespoon = 3 teaspoons 1 fluid ounce = 2 tablespoons 1 cup = 8 fluid ounces 1 pint = 2 cups 1 quart = 2 pints 1 gallon = 4 quarts 1 pound = 16 ounces Metric units and equivalents: The liter is the basic unit for metric measurements of capacity; grams are used to measure weight. The metric system is based on multiples of 10. To convert to a larger unit, divide by 10 or move the decimal to the left. To convert to a smaller unit, do the opposite. 2. Divide the class into five groups, and assign each group to a work station. Hand out the Weight and Capacity Shopping activity sheets. 3. Instruct students to use the activity sheets to record their findings. 4. Ask the groups to move from station to station until each group has visited each station. 5. Ask each group what they learned about capacity and weight. Did they see the relationships? How hard was it to measure accurately? Additional Activities 1. Discuss the difference between weight and volume. Have students discuss whether it is more economical to buy produce by the pound, by the piece, or according to volume. Why is produce usually sold by volume or by the piece in farmer s markets but by the pound in grocery stores? 2. Discuss different businesses that depend on scales. For example, doctors weigh their patients to know how much medicine to prescribe, greenhouses measure garden seeds, pharmacists measure liquids and powders to fill prescriptions. 3. Visit a grocery store and find five products sold by the pound, five sold by the piece, and five sold according to volume. Resources The Utah Education Network provides a variety of resources for teaching measuring. Visit and search keyword measuring. 1 millileter = liters 1 centiliter = 0.01 liters 1 deciliter = 0.1 liters 1 dekaliter = 10 liters 1 hectoliter = 100 liters 1 kiloliter = 1000 liters 1 kilogram = 1000 grams Utah Agriculture in the Classroom 3 utah.agclassroom.org

4 NAME Produce Shopping Complete the following activity as you progress through the produce (fruit and vegetable) stations.

Do you think you ate 152 eggs last year? Maybe not, but think about how many foods you ate containing eggs cookies, pancakes, noodles, pudding, and cakes. Most of the foods we eat are combined with others. Create a bar graph on the back of this paper to compare the pounds of each farm fresh product that we consume in a year.
