Reflection: Unit Planning Measurement- Comparing Length Day 3 - Section 2: Presentation of Lesson

When planning this unit, I gave myself 3 days to work on length comparisons.  I wanted to make sure that the students thoroughly understood how to make measurement comparisons.  I don't think my students really needed the extra day.  They did very well with comparing lengths and seemed a little bored with it.  In the future I think that I will only spend 2 days on length and then add an extra day to review all measurement comparisons at the end of the unit if needed.
