I am a 5th grade teacher and I really like resources like this which maximize student engagement.
Full alignment to NC.5.NBT.3
Learning objectives are very clear and specific for this lesson.
Assessment strategies are clear and can be used to accurately measure student progress
Strengths: Students will be actively engaged and will have fun learning concepts that can be dull when not brought to life with creative lessons. I also really like the opportunities students have to discuss and talk about the activity with their classmates.
Opportunities: This could be expanded into a mini classroom olympics similar to what AIMS uses to create more opportunites for students to work with real world data.

I am a 5th grade math teacher and a parent of a 3rd grader and I really like this resource and excited to dive into it with my students. It is specific, measurable with clear directions and easy to find materials. Quick data collection resource that can be used to provide specific feedback to students.
Full alignment to depth and breadth of standards. 5.NBT.3. tagged
The learning objectives are specific, measurable and achievable through completion of this resource.
This resource has specific and enough assessment strategies that can determine whether students are mastering the concept.
This resource is aligned with the supporting and priority standards for this grade level.
This resource is geared towards keeping student engaged in the activity with clear indication of rigor, higher level thinking skills and reasoning.
Opportunities: This resource may want to integrate the use of interactive technology that can give students immediate feedback on their progress. In addition, teacher can provide a variety of manipulatives for students to use as they work in flexible, differentiated or remediation groups.

I am a fifth grade teacher. I have used this the swimming times to help demonstrate the comparing of decimals. It is easy for students to observe the results and record the time for comparison.
-Full alignment to depth and breadth of standards tagged.
-Has clear learning objectives that are achievable through completion of this resource.
-Has clear and sufficient assessment strategies that will accurately measure student progress and mastery of the specified standard.
2 strengths: This lesson has content that is focused and engaging. It has rigor and conceptual knowledge that requires critical thinking. The engagement of physically modeling the events of time is creating a memorable experience for the students.
Opportunities for growth: Students may be able to recreate other experiences that measure the differences in time. One that comes to mind is reaction time--dropping a ruler. I might be helpful to be able to project the stopwatch on the board to record the differences in time for comparison.

I am an Accelerated Teacher (interventionist & content coach) for 4th and 5th grade . I really enjoyed this lesson plan. I think the kids would have a lot of fun because it is real-world activity for them to participate in. I believe the lesson has:
-Full alignment to depth and breadth of standards tagged.
-Has clear learning objectives that are achievable through completion of this resource.
-Has clear and sufficient assessment strategies that will accurately measure student progress and mastery of the specified standard.
2 strengths: 1.) Students are actively engaged in an instructional task that promotes the Four C's. Task is appropriate given the age and ability of targeted learner. 2.) Key concepts, ideas, and arguments are clear and supported by an appropriate level of detail to ensure student understanding.
Opportunities for growth: This is a suggestion that maybe having another adult to help facilitate with the different groups may be helpful.

I am a 6th, 7th, and 8th-grade math teacher. I really enjoyed that this lesson was very detailed and engaging. This is a lesson plane with lots of detail, a script, and extension activities. This lesson has full alignment to the depth and breadth of standards tagged, 5.NBT.7 and 5.NBT.3. This lesson has clearly stated student outcomes that are achievable through the completion of this lesson. The resource includes clear and sufficient assessment strategies that will accurately measure student progress and mastery of the specified standards. I believe that the resource is engaging, user-friendly, and appropriate for the target audience. This resource may benefit from integrating technology to reach personalized learning goals.
