Measure Twice Using Different Units of Length Bundle with Game

2nd Grade • Lesson Plan Bundle

Lesson Plan Description

Your 2nd graders will have fun practicing the skill of measurement with both inches and centimeters and strategically practice the “language” of math at the same time.  Your students will:

  • Segment 1:  practice the academic language of measurement with support of sentence frames by working with partners to measure different classroom objects twice using both centimeters and inches
  • Segment 2:  demonstrate their understanding of this skill in “real life” by measuring their partners with inches and centimeters and compare how the 2 measurements are related to the size of the unit chosen

Exit slips provide valuable instructional information to you regarding your students understanding of concept of measuring with different forms of measurement.
