Measurement Unit

Hello Everyone!
I wanted to just quickly share a unit we are starting next week...measurement.  We focus mainly on using nonstandard units of measurement to determine and compare length.  Using nonstandard units helps kids to really understand what is meant by measurement.  Using different sized nonstandard units can lead to good understanding of the reason behind standard units.  We also spend a lot of time estimating.  Estimating helps kiddos focus on the measurement process.  Here are a few pics of what is included in the unit. As always, if you see any typos of if you have any suggestions, concerns or comments, please don't hesitate to leave me a note or e-mail!

Unit includes about 45 pages of measurement connections and fun, math tub and whole group activities. 
You can download it HERE!! :)

Talk to you all soon!! Have a great night!!
