Oh boy, oh boy! It is Measurement time! Our new Math series starts off day one with Customary units of measure (inch, foot, yard, mile) easy enough right? Day 2 they switch gears and go into all of the metric units of measure (millimeter, centimeter, meter, decimeter, kilometer) NOT SO EASY!!! All of this vocab is thrown at them in a 2 day span.
So I had to think quick!
I put it all into a foldable flipbook. This way it was organized and a little bit of a cheat sheet for them to reference to throughout the chapter. They put the unit in order on the foldable from smallest to biggest. Inside each flap they glued a picture showing items that are that size. Next year I will add to it where they have to name 3 things they would measure with that unit.
Here are some pictures to see what I mean:
