Imagine your class, spread out around the room engaged in authentic measurement practice. With this activity, your students get hands-on, fun measurement experience with a recording sheet that guides them through collecting and analyzing data.
With a fun, springy theme, your students will measure the same distances in centimeters and inches and then compare the measurements to notice relationships between the units. Then, the students will create a line plot and answer questions about their data that involve critical thinking and predicting.
This activity is designed for use with plastic hopping rabbits or frogs, but it can also work with origami frogs or rabbits. This math lab pack includes 3 student work pages.
Aligned to Common Core 2.MD.A.1, 2.MD.A.2, and 2.MD.D.9, this is the perfect way to celebrate Easter or Spring in an educational setting! (Plus, moving around the room to measure gives students a chance to get some of those Spring Fever wiggles out!)
