Add a little something extra to your Presidential study or President’s Day activities! Get students moving and measuring! Many state tests require students to complete performance event type assessments.
This activity is perfect for your kiddos to show off their knowledge of customary length.
1. They must convert the height of the Presidents from inches to feet.
2. They have to put the Presidents in order from tallest to shortest (greater than, less than).
3. They have to measure out the height of Abe Lincoln with sentence strips and then measure themselves against it.
4. They must compare the heights of the founding fathers George Washington, John Adams, and Thomas Jefferson.
I have included anchor charts to show how we thought through this process, along with a conversion poster.
I also have included pictures of students in action and a final picture of our Bulletin Board that displayed our heights against Abe Lincoln.
