Measuring with Standard and Non-standard units of measurement using the trunks and tufts.
One worksheet has the students measuring the tree trunks with the tufts. I also have included trunk cards that can be cut out and used in the following way:
I use these trucks in a few different ways.
1. I cut them out and have the students use non-standard units of measurement to measure their length.
2. I cut them out and the students use the trunks as the non-standard unit of measurement to measure object in the room.
3. I cut them out and have the students use a ruler to measure the trunks in standard measurement.
I have included recording sheets for all the activities listed above.
I also have addition and subtraction. I use these activities during math workstations after reading the book.
