Get out your ruler and your magnifying glass! Items in the classroom have been stolen and it is up to the Measuring Detectives to figure out what they are. The students will use a ruler to figure out what items have the right length of the stolen items. Works well for groups and individual work.
MACC.2.MD.A.1: Measure the length of an object by selecting and using appropriate tools such as rulers, yardsticks, meter sticks, and measuring tapes.
