We have been learning about measurement for the past couple of weeks.
Students measured lengths of tape using "baby steps," "basketball player steps," and popsicle sticks. They discovered why we get different measurements depending on what units we use.
Estimating is an important part of measurement. Before measuring with inches and centimeters, students learned to estimate how long common classrooms items are.
Finally, we used rulers to accurately measure with both inches and centimeters.
