This lesson walks students through the steps of measuring the length of an object using the "box" method. This helps students easily see quarters of an inch even when the ruler is marked in eighths or sixteenths. If you have students who struggle to understand and use the markings on a standard ruler, this method will help tremendously!

❤️This was an amazing resource for my students. They were struggling with measuring by quarter inches and the strategy introduced in the PowerPoint was such a great and helpful tool. I saw a major difference in their understanding after using this! Thank you! - Stephanie Abrahim

❤️This was fantastic! The power point visual alone was SO helpful. I've never had a class of students pick up measurement to the nearest quarter inch so fast! - Ms. White in Third
