This packet goes along with the book Actual Size by Steve Jenkins. Read the book aloud to students then ask them to measure out the lengths of the different animals. I usually ask mine to work in partners or groups and I give the students with the smaller animals more than one card. I also complete this outside using chalk since the length of some of the animals requires a lot of space. Once all of the animals have been measured out students can use the activity page to compare the measurements of the animals. Answer key is included.
