Math: Measure Up

Children learn about the concept of measuring and using standard and non-standard units in this lesson plan featuring hands-on activities and a video excerpt from Curious George. They begin sharing prior knowledge about concepts related to measuring. Next, they watch and discuss a video in which Curious George needs to figure out how to measure a building’s height. Children then draw pictures of Curious George and Gnocchi, the cat, and use them to measure various items they’ve selected from around the school. They compare these measurements to their predictions for each item.
