Looking for a new way to practice measurement? Want to give your students a fresh way of measuring everyday objects already found in your classroom? LOOK NO FURTHER!
Measurement task strips take everyday objects found in an ordinary classroom and turn them into a teaching tool. All you do is add unconventional things found at the dollar store to a large bucket and your student will quickly fall in love with measuring. Everything. Guaranteed.
Standards addressed are geared toward 2nd grade (2.MD.1-4) but don't let that stop you or your students. Any grade can use this resource and ANY KID will love finding new ways and new things to measure.
Administration asking for student accountability? No worries! There is even worksheets included in black and white to not only save you ink, but also to save you from explaining why your measuring munchkins are "playing" with counters, straws, craft sticks, and beans.
Looking for a great center activity? Here it is! Once you assemble your box, the students help themselves to a plethora of measuring devices and tasks and you are left watching in amazement as they come up to you and tell you just how many rulers it takes to get from one classroom wall to the other.
Don't believe me? Give it a try. I promise you and your students will have blast measuring everything in sight. I dare you!
