Measuring UP!

In this math lesson, learners use inchworm measuring tools to measure the lengths of several objects in the room. Learners first read "Inch by Inch" by Leo Lionni and listen carefully for how the inchworm measures throughout the story. Next learners use inchworm manipulatives to measure their feet, arms, legs, and hands. Learners also work in pairs to measure objects around the room.
