Learning how to measure begins with using nonstandard units of measurement. This can be anything from cubes to paper clips to paper plates. So how about peppers? Peppers work great!
This product includes color and black/white pepper 'rulers' that can be printed, laminated and cut for each student. Students then use the pepper rulers to measure the height and width of 10 different Spring themed pictures. The accompanying recording sheet allows you to check their work. Also included is a set of discussion cards to help facilitate students conversations about measurement.
This is a great way to celebrate Cinco de Mayo!
