Explore measuring with this fun lesson activity. It can be used for cooperative learning situations, either as a class assigned activity or in math centers.
Students will use measuring tools to measure a bunny pen for Bart. It is done in small groups giving the children lots of hands on experience with measuring and recording their data.
After recording their data, they will move their information onto graphs and discuss their findings.
The activity can be done in one longer lesson time or 2 smaller blocks of time- splitting the measuring and the graphing into separate days.
Students enjoy the activity and you will be amazed at the discussions that will result.
Enclosed are the instructions and the ready to copy handouts for recording and graphing, as well as a variety of bunny pens for students to use in this measuring activity.
