Students will read the book How Big is a Foot? as an introduction to a math measurement lesson comparing the size of their feet to their height.
Students will use their shoe measurements to determine how many shoes its takes to equal their height.
* How Big is a Foot?, by Rolf Myller
* Construction paper
* Pens and pencils
Lesson Plan Procedure:
1. Teacher will read the book How Big is a Foot? as an introduction to the lesson.
2. Students will then work in pairs to trace an outline of their shoes on a piece of construction paper.
3. Students will predict and then measure how many shoes it takes to equal their height.
4. Students will then line up according to height, shortest to tallest, to see if their "shoe size" measurements were similar to their height as measured in traditional inches.
Assessments & notes
Assessment Based on Objectives:
Teachers can evaluate predictions vs. actual measurements of each student's "shoe height."
