This measurement pack covers standard and non-standard measurement, graphing, telling time, and graduated order! The St. Patrick's Day images will help keep your students engaged as they practice measuring, graphing and ordering! Each activity has a matching recording sheet and can be done in small groups or as individual centers!
The activities included are:
Measure the Leprechauns! - Students measure the height of the leprechauns using the shamrock “rulers”. Students record their answers on the matching recording sheet. You can also use a standard ruler since each leprechaun is sized in inches.
Shamrock Measuring – Students use the coin rulers” to measure the width of each shamrock on the cards. Matching recording sheet features 2 sheets per page, to cut down on paper!
Time to Find the Gold! – Cut out and laminate cards. Students can match the time on the clock cards to matching digital time cards! There is a set of cards for time to the hour, as well as another set for time to the 1/2 hour. Different graphics were used to help differentiate the cards. Your students can play with all the cards at once, or just pull one set for more focus. This can be played as a memory game or as a pocket chart matching center. The matching recording sheets have students draw the hands on the analog clocks to match the digital time.
Order Up! – Cut and laminate cards. Students arrange cards in order from smallest to largest or vice versa. The matching recording sheets have students cut and paste the pictures in order.
Delicious Data– Students use the tally chart to complete the graph. Then they use their graph to answer the questions on the matching recording sheet! The recording sheet prints 2 to a page to save on paper. There are 2 different tally sheets, with corresponding graphs and recording sheets.
St. Patty’s Pups Graphing – Students roll the dice and graph which leprechaun puppy comes up each time. When one of the images reaches the top of the graph, students stop rolling and fill out the matching recording sheet!
