Reflection: Connection to Prior Knowledge Measuring With Student Steps - Section 2: Using Student Steps to Measure


It is important that the students make the connection to measuring with tiles and measuring with student steps.  Although they are different units, the students should still remember to start at one edge and go to the other, make sure that they measure in a straight line, and that there are no spaces between units.

I like to review these ideas before each measurement lesson.
