Measurement Fun

Hello everyone!

I just wanted to give a quick update on a mini project we worked on!  This marking period, the students learn about measuring with nonstandard units of measurement.

This week the students traced each other on white butcher paper.  The students decorated themselves.  To throw in a bit of hockey fun, I pulled up some pictures of Washington Capitals jerseys from over the years.  I told the students they could make their shirt like one of the jerseys.  Most of them did! 

After decorating, the students spent time measuring various parts of their bodies using unifix cubes.  The students had to measure the following:
  •  the width of their head
  •  the length from their shoulder to their fingertips
  •  the length from their knee to their foot
  •  the length from their neck to their leg
  •  the length from head to toe!

The students recorded their answers, glued their worksheet on their paper, and cut around their bodies.  We hung their bodies out in the hallway.
Two of my girls waiting to hang their picture up!

The kids did a great job and had a ton of fun!


Now for a hockey update:  We are still working on our movie.  Aside from curriculum, January was busy with assessments, snow days, and snow delays!  In fact, our field trip to the ice rink has been delayed TWICE due to weather.  We are **HOPEFULLY** going next Friday!

This afternoon, the 1st and 4th graders will get together to continue writing their scripts!  I'm looking forward to seeing what they write!

Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by!
