The snow on Monday morning made for an excited group of first graders! I decided to use that energy for an extension of our math unit on measuring.
We started by thinking about the number 100 in different ways.
Then, I challenged students to use rulers to show what 100 inches of snow would look like. We used base-10 blocks to figure out that 8 rulers is about equal to 100 inches. Each group got 8 rulers and went to work!
