Is it big or is it small? Is it short or is it tall? This mini unit on measurement will make learning fun for all! With the purchase of this 24 page unit you will receive 4 lesson plans that were created based on 4 children's picture books. The entire unit was "created" by Sammy Squid (the squid from the adorable book "I'm the Biggest Thing in the Ocean"). Each day Sammy writes a letter to your class to get them excited about the day's math lesson on measuring. Students will be involved with activities that require them to compare the size of objects, order objects by their size, and measure objects with non-standard units of measurement. There is a snack component incorporated within the plans for Day 2 and a craftivity incorporated within the plans for Day 4.
This unit is aligned with the following Common Core Standards: 1.MD.1; 1.MD.2
