Inchworm Measurement

Hello Everyone!
We are deep into our measurement unit.  One activity we did this week was make our own worms and use them to measure.  After reading "Inch and a Half," and "Inch By Inch" we just had to!! I gave the kids a little pattern and they picked out the scrapbook paper they wanted to use to create their little worm.  Their next job was to pick out some things they wanted to measure in the room. We, of course, had already talked about appropriate things to measure with something as big as our worms.  They had to estimate before actually measuring.  I asked them to notice if their estimates were getting closer and closer as they went along. And....NO GAPS or OVERLAPS! :)

We then, of course, had to measure with sour and gummy worms.  Don't worry, Mom and Dad, they didn't get to eat the one they measured with!! :)  Some kids decided to create their own learning recording sheet.

I added the worm pattern and recording sheet to my measurement unit.  

You can get it here! Inch on over and click!!

Hope you're having a great weekend!!   They always go by way too fast!! 
Thanks for stopping by for a peek!
