This is a project based learning packet that includes lots of measurement activities.  You can do it in inches and centimeters or you could do it in nonstandard units. We designed ours for our classroom elf on the shelf but you can design it for any elf. (Dollar Tree always has some too!)  There is a note asking students to bring elves and supplies to build the furniture as well!

Driving Question: How can I create furniture just the right size for an elf?

Activity 1: Brainstorm how we could answer our question.

Activity 2: Measure Elves (inches, centimeters, or nonstandard) and write problems with missing addends.  (measurement)

Activity 4:  Brainstorm furniture design and the measurements for that piece of furniture. (measurement)

Activity 5:  Create your budget based on the supplies you need. (addition)

Activity 6: Build furniture and reflect.

Activity 7:  Measure each other furniture. (measurement)

Activity 8:  Students share furniture with the class and get feedback.
