President's Day Measurement Fun


Hello darlings!  The Snowpocalypse has over taken us again, this time with an early dismissal.  At least it has given me time to blog!  (even if this is cheating, because I am just reposting something from a year ago...)  I felt I could help you out a bit if you are looking for something to spice up your math for President's Day.  
...................................................................................................................................................................

My kiddos are learning how to convert Customary Length, so I wanted to create a fun project/activity (Projectivity) for them so they could really gain a deep understanding. (AND I wanted to use a performance event to integrate COMMON CORE!)  I will admit, this was a little tough for some of my third graders, but I pulled small groups for kiddos who just needed an extra boost.

1. They must convert the height of the Presidents from inches to feet and inches. 

2. They have to put the Presidents in order from tallest to shortest (greater than less than).

3. They have to measure out the height of Abe Lincoln with sentence strips and then measure themselves against it. 

4. They must compare their height with Abe Lincoln's.

I hope the pictures and the Projectivity sheets speak for themselves.

Enjoy friends!

  2. I'm excited to use this. I've been already thinking that I need to start incorporating other things along with my multiplication/division unit and this will be a great reminder/introduction to measurement, thanks so much
