Lengths of Ladybugs

In this math lesson, learners explore the concept of using units to measure length. Learners first read "Ladybug on the Move" by Richard Fowler and measure the distance the ladybug travels on each page using yarn. Next, learners make their own "Go Ladybug Go!" books and use lima beans and a ladybug ruler to make and record measurements.
