This 22 slide PowerPoint presentation was created by Elizabeth Hill to use in her third grade classroom. It was used as a week long unit focusing on measuring to the nearest whole inch, half inch, and quarter inch. The presentation includes real life examples, interactive activities,and test practice. There is also a unique song created to help students remember the steps of measuring to the nearest quarter inch.
Please see more about how I use this presentation and other activities on my websitehttp://tricksoftheteachingtrade.blogspot.com/
I am so happy that I was able to help. It is such a difficult concept for kids to master. I just had to develop something to make it easier. Look for a unit plan coming soon with lessons, printables, and games.
