Inches are a Cinch

Hello Everyone,
We've been working hard on our measurement unit in math. We have brainstormed many different ways to measure the length of things using nonstandard units of measurement. Now we are comparing those with standard units. Today we investigated the inch. We compared the differences between an inch ruler and some of the nonstandard units we have been using. Kiddos had fun measuring their feet and hands!

A mini unit includes these pages plus a poem, and a written expression component.
