As one of my fast paced math groups moved through the measring length unit, I noticed they needed a little help with using the tools to measure length and then record and analyze.
So.. In preparation for others approaching this the unit I decided we needed some measuring experience.
Some students measured with centimeters and inches. They measured objects in the room and each other.
I know this looks bad... but it's completely innocent. My second grade friend is measuring the length of his finger. I have blurred out his face but the look on it was absolutely serious!
