How do you Measure Up?

Second graders investigate measurement and proportion.  In this second grade mathematics lesson plan,  students read Biggest, Strongest, Fastest by Steve Jenkins and measure weight, height, and length as explore what they would be like or what they could do if they possessed some of the characteristics of the animals in the book.  Students use proportions and round answers to whole numbers.
