This unit was created to teach beginning linear measurement with both non-standard units of measure (like paper clips, snap cubes, pennies, and teddy bear manipulatives) as well as standard measurement with a ruler. (this unit does not designate inches or centimeters) You provide the rulers you need for your class.
The packet includes teaching posters and whole group teaching points. It then goes into 5 lessons on measuring which are perfect for whole group or small group. The activities can be placed in math tubs for independent practice and will keep your little mathematicians busy measuring around the room. This is a hands on unit that incorporates easy to find school supplies. Students will be measuring items in the classroom. This unit will last you at the least one week, but more than likely closer to two weeks if done completely.
The unit also integrates graphing, written response, and a bulletin board idea too!
