Can You Measure Up? http://www.teachnet-lab.org/miami/2004/concepcion.htm Can You Measure Up?
Can You Measure Up? is a unit that introduces children to the mathematical concept of measurement through the use of literature. Students use technology to visit websites where they can play interactive games, gather information to complete activity sheets, and complete online projects. One lesson using Inch By Inch by Leo Lionni, takes students to an interactive website where they can measure objects using inches. A Measurement Book Project wraps up the unit nicely with a final product the students can enjoy going back to again and again.
