Product Description
Perfect way to introduce standard and non-standard units to students.
This lesson can be structured using standard units like inches or feet, estimation or exact measurement, or even using objects in the classroom like tissue boxes for the younger grade levels.
The prompt for students is that the principal needs to know how tall every teacher in the building is. To figure this out, the students will be asked to use multiple units, standard and nonstandard, to measure the length of their teacher. Teachers can lay down a cutout of themselves on the ground for the students to measure the length of the teacher’s body. At the end of the lesson, each student must individually write a note to the principal stating their process in measuring their teacher.
