This packet is based on the book by Steve Jenkins: Actual Size.
*Read the story Actual Size by Steve Jenkins to students.
*Complete the activities with students
Grades 1-2: provide connecting cubes, string, rulers/yard sticks, and leveled cards
Grades 3-5: provide sidewalk chalk, rulers/yard sticks, and leveled cards (and an outside venue to measure and draw animals)
*Have students work in pairs and after completing their animals, compare their animal sizes to other pairs. Depending on the time factor, make multiple copies of the cards to give to students so they are making more than one animal.
