Make measurement fun with Jack, Be Nimble! Teach the Nursery Rhyme to your class, but also tie in measurement with this activity. Make candlesticks out of paper towel rolls and have your students measure them with standard and nonstandard units. Then have them jump over the candlesticks like Jack does in the rhyme!
This packet includes a copy of the rhyme for students to add to a poetry notebook or Nursery Rhyme Book. There are also sentence strips so you can cut them apart and students can put them back in order in a pocket chart.
