The Librarian Who Measured The Earth

Learners use small objects as a unit of measurement for larger objects. Working in small groups, they measure the circumference of smaller spheres and estimate the circumference of larger spheres using these measurements. Students check their estimations by taking actual measurements of the larger spheres.

Lesson Planet was a great help to me during my student teaching. The site allowed me to find the lessons and support materials necessary for me to create lesson plans.
