## Learning Objectives

Students will be able to measure objects to the nearest inch.

## Lesson

### Introduction (5 minutes)

• Display the Inching Along worksheet somewhere the entire class can see.
• If rounding to the nearest inch is a new concept for the students, explain how to measure an object to the nearest inch.
• Complete the projected worksheet as a class by having students volunteer answers.

### Explicit Instruction/Teacher Modeling (5 minutes)

• Pick out any 2 objects from the classroom that are not on the Measure It, Man! worksheet and, using a ruler, model to the students how you measure an object to the nearest inch.

### Guided Practice/Interactive Modeling (20 minutes)

• Hand out rulers.
• Arrange students into pairs.
• Hand out one Measure It, Man! worksheet per pair of students.
• Tell the students that they will be going on a "scavenger hunt" with their partner by looking for objects in the room to measure with their rulers.
• Explain the directions to the students. You may want to tell them they can start on any object to measure so students are not waiting for an object to measure.
• Allow students to complete the worksheet as you monitor and help as needed.

### Independent Working Time (5 minutes)

• Hand out the Buggy Bugs worksheet and have students work on it independently.

## Extend

### Differentiation

• Enrichment: Challenge students to measure objects in their room or at home and record their findings to turn in.
• Support: Pair a student who needs support with a student who is at grade level during the Guided Practice activity.

## Review

### Assessment (5 minutes)

• Check the Buggy Bugs worksheet for correctness.

### Review and Closing (5 minutes)

• As review, create a group work station where students measure objects to the nearest inch and compare their answers with their peers.
