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.
