Meters, yards, inches, centimeters and arm spans were all being used this week to calculate distances, the length objects around home and at school. Students worked in class to collect measurements for surfaces they see everyday. Students were also assigned class activities and asked questions that had them comparing units of measure. These activities helped to challenged their critical thinking and their abilities to work in partner and small group collaborations. Each class created line plots with data collected from their arm span measurements. The students particularly enjoyed working with a partners to measure how far they could jump. They recorded their measurements in inches and created another class line plot.
