Measurement Activity

Students line themselves up from smallest to tallest at the chalkboard with the teacher marking their heights. After recording their names on the board next to their mark, they work with a partner to measure their height using several pieces of yarn cut in 1 foot increments. They record their height and determine if they are still in order from smallest to tallest. The class discuss proper measurement techniques and how it applies to their activity.
