Versatile activities associated with Jan Brett's the Mitten can be used in Math Centers, in small groups, or as whole group lessons.  Clip Art images of Mittens in 5 different sizes are used in the Measurement Activity.  Students use non-standard measuring tools to determine the length of each of the mittens.  Animal cards are used as two of the five non-standard tools.  Follow up questions ask students to think critically.  A spinner with clip art images of the eight animals is used to practice recording tally marks and graphing data.

Generate measurement data by measuring lengths using rulers marked with halves and fourths of an inch. Show the data by making a line plot, where the horizontal scale is marked off in appropriate units-whole numbers, halves, or quarters.
Draw a scaled picture graph and a scaled bar graph to represent a data set with several categories. Solve one- and two-step “how many more” and “how many less” problems using information presented in scaled bar graphs. For example, draw a bar graph in which each square in the bar graph might represent 5 pets.
Draw a picture graph and a bar graph (with single-unit scale) to represent a data set with up to four categories. Solve simple put-together, take-apart, and compare problems using information presented in a bar graph.
Generate measurement data by measuring lengths of several objects to the nearest whole unit, or by making repeated measurements of the same object. Show the measurements by making a line plot, where the horizontal scale is marked off in whole-number units.
Organize, represent, and interpret data with up to three categories; ask and answer questions about the total number of data points, how many in each category, and how many more or less are in one category than in another.
