Reflection: Connection to Prior Knowledge Broken Ruler Measurements - Section 3: Measuring


I realized after watching this video, the student had changed his ruler to be renumbered to complete the tasks.  Although this did not create enough of a challenge, it was something that I modeled for the students.  He simply used the strategy I had demonstrated.   Using this lesson as a guide, it is something I won't always teach, but may be more appropriate for a small group lesson rather than a whole group lesson based on needs and skills of the students.
