Our Introduction to Measuring Lengths lesson plan introduces students to how to use standard and metric units of measure to measure length. This interactive lesson engages students with practical applications of determining length. Students are asked to complete an interactive activity in which they measure each other’s heights and order themselves from shortest to tallest. Students are also asked to complete practice problems on their own in order to demonstrate their understanding of the lesson.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to order three objects by length and express the length of an object as a whole number by using a smaller object with which to measure.
