Creating Units- Van de Walle
One of our first measurement lessons this week came from the great math resource written by Van de Walle. Students created their own units and used them to measurement a few things in our room. Then we glued the units down to a piece of paper to demonstrate how rulers are created. It is always very interesting to see their thinking when they start to label their rulers because you can really see what they understand conceptually about measurement.
