Create Joy and Teach


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.
