PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This 97-page resource includes 11 open ended measuring investigations where your students will make their own interesting discoveries as they measure features of their own bodies. They will need measuring tape or yarn and a ruler to measure lengths such as their arm span and height.

I had my students reflect after the activity by posting a comment on our classroom blog. Some of my students' neat observations and reflections included:
• "The person you are measuring has to stand still so you can measure accurately."
• "When measuring the height of your partner it is better if they are laying down."
• "When you are measuring your partner's foot they should take their shoe off as it's more accurate. Some shoes are actually bigger than your foot."
• "Measuring is really important. When I did investigation 1, I didn't measure too correctly. If I was a tailor and did not measure accurately and get things wrong, then my customers would be very unhappy."

The Common Core State Standards this unit touched upon were:
• Measure and estimate lengths in standard units.
• Analyzing measurements for relationships such as equal to, half the length, or eight times the length, as well as comparing measurement data.
• Solve problems involving measurement and estimation.

Activity Duration:
My second and third graders needed the entire week/five days to complete this activity (consisting of 11 different investigations)-I ended up having them complete 5 of them as a class and the other 6 I left as an ongoing math center. My third and fourth graders needed only three days.

Printing Tips:
Please note that this product was created in 8.5 X 11 in. paper format standard in the USA. I'm teaching overseas where the standard paper size is A4. I've been able to print on any other size paper by choosing 'shrink to fit' or 'fit to printable area' in the printer options. I've even enlarged some response activities to fit on A3 paper for group work.
