This measurement lesson goes along with the book, "Snakes: Long, Longer, Longest." I have the Virginia Kindergarten Math Measurement SOLs linked to this document, but it could be used with any of the primary grades that use basic measurement skills. In this lesson, students complete a culmination activity after they have already tried measuring with various nonstandard measurement tools (popsicle sticks, cubes, etc.) In this lesson, students will take plastic snakes (like the kind you buy at the dollar store) and they will measure various items around the classroom. There is a worksheet at the end of the lesson description where the student has many opportunities to measure things around your classroom. The student has to fill out the sentence stem: "The _______ is shorter/ the same as/ longer than ___ snakes." So, the student would have to write the name of the object, then circle either shorter, the same as, or longer than. Finally, they'd write the number of snakes they used. I hope this is helpful. Thanks!
