How Many Feet? Measuring

I currently do a 1st/2nd split and so half my day is now spent teaching 2nd grade. Not only that but one day a week the entire grade 2 team switches students based on math abilities, so that they get a full 90 minutes of Math Intervention. We assess the students based on their needs in math, and place them in groups to help strengthen the skills that they may be struggling with. Each teacher can do either math centers related to current subjects, work in small groups, whole group instruction, or plan hands on, interactive lessons.

Our grade 2 students briefly touched on measurement in grade 1 and so we took this week to work on that particular skill. I chose to do a scavenger hunt around the room where the students had to locate different items and measure them with a provided unit of measurement. I created some simple shoe outlines that the students used to measure the length and/or width of certain items in the classroom. They really liked it when they got to measure a friend!
