The teaching guide for the “Are You a Square or a Rectangle? Geometry Measurement Activity” provides an outline of the lesson plan, including objectives, materials, and assessment. It is designed for students in grades 3-5 and focuses on teaching them to differentiate between squares and rectangles, measure their length and width, and record their measurements accurately.

The guide begins with an introduction that prompts students to think about the differences between squares and rectangles and gives examples of objects that fall into each category. The direct instruction section follows, during which the teacher draws the shapes on the board and discusses their characteristics, guiding students through identifying similarities and differences.

In the guided practice section, students receive objects to measure and record their measurements. In the independent practice section, students receive a worksheet with pictures of squares and rectangles to identify, label, and measure. Finally, the lesson ends with a closing section that reinforces the concepts taught and emphasizes the importance of accurate measurement.
