Marvelous Measurement in the Outdoor Classroom

This Marvelous Measurement in the Outdoor Classroom lesson plan also includes:

Here is a lesson that isn't just about making scientific observations, it's also about determining which tool is needed to collect accurate data. After reviewing what it means to be safe when working outdoors, the class hikes around the school yard as they hunt for natural specimens. Each child collects one specimen from the yard and then uses several different tools to determine which tool is the best for analyzing their specific object. Thermometers, rulers, scales, and yardsticks should be ready for learners to use as they explore.
