Reflection: Lesson Planning Measurement- Comparing Length Day 1 - Section 2: Presentation of Lesson


I was not able to find a book that I liked about length, so I decided to use this story and just have the students compare the length of the fish.  There are a lot of great books available that are written about math concepts, but when you can not find one that fits, it is also possible to use a book that you like and just add the mathematical concept in as a discussion of the story or the pictures.

Measurement- Comparing Length Day 1

Unit 6: Graphing and Measurement
Lesson 11 of 18

Objective: Students will be able to compare length using the terms longer and shorter.

Big Idea: Fish Eyes is a math story, but it is not focused on length. I use this book to have the students compare the length of the different fish in the story.
