Our Expressing Length lesson plan teaches students about measuring and expressing length with various units. During this lesson, students are asked to measure different classroom objects using both inches and paperclips, demonstrating that there can be different units of length measurement. Students are also asked to use a paperclip to measure objects in their homes and then draw a picture of the object.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to express the length of an object as a whole number of length units that are laid end to end with no gaps or spaces.
