Big Ideas: Measurements can be determined using known referents as the unit in the measurement process. This lesson builds on students' work of measuring with standard units. This task presents students with a situation where they measure how far they can jump. This task is to give students an experience of measuring varying distance as well as giving them the opportunity to choose the appropriate measurement tool as well as the appropriate measurement unit. The mathematical concepts in this lessons builds toward students' future work with the number line and finding sums and differences within 100. Vocabulary: about, a little less than, a little more than, longer, shorter, measure, standards units, units, customary, metric, inch, foot, centimeter, tools, meter, centimeter, ruler, yardstick, meter stick, measuring tape, estimate, sums, differences Special Materials: ruler yardstick meter stick measuring tape masking or painters tape
