Measuring Keepers

Last week we began a new math unit on measurement. First graders measured many different classroom objects like books, folders, and glue bottles. They measured with different nonstandard units including linker cubes, paper clips and tiles. Today students measured fish!  They had a very specific mission - to figure out whether or not their fish were long enough to be "keepers".  Students worked very hard to measure carefully and accurately to determine which perch, mackerel and alewife fish should be kept or tossed back!


  1. I would love to have a copy of this activity! I see that it's in a book. Which book did u use or can I get a copy?

  2. Forgot to put my email address.
