Area and perimeter lesson with Cheez-Its . Kids would love it - any lesson is immediately made better when you use food! Put the Cheez-its on graph paper for this lesson for an easy transition to finding A/P without the snack in the future :)
Well this might get complicated.Capacity foldable to add to math notebook. I like this a lot more than "Gallon Man" because it shows how the measurements could actually fit into each other. We have a machine that cuts these!
Frog Jump: Measurement and Gross Motor Activity Frog Jump! A math measurement and gross motor and activity. I'm thinking we could adapt this by using those plastic jumpy frogs/bunnies and measure the distance.
Here's a set of 24 measurement task cards for students to practice measuring objects to the nearest inch and half inch. For use for 2014 school year when we go back to teaching standard units of measurement.
Measurement: Students place wiggly worms in order according to length. Pre-cut strips of green construction paper in various lengths and have the children pick a piece. They cut out and decorate their worms any way they want.
