Wrap Around Ruler Lesson

We had fun with our measuring activity at the Wayne RESA TIPM K-2 course!

First we read Inch by Inch, By Leo Lionni.

Lesson Focus
Students will use a non-customary ruler made from straw pieces to determine equalities and inequalities (longer/shorter, greater than/less than, and equal to).

All you need is:

Plastic drinking straws (2 different colors)
2 large buttons or beads

HAPPY HOLIDAYS!
