Lesson 5 Measure with Connecting Cubes
Let’s use connecting cubes to measure length.
Warm-up Notice and Wonder: Measure a Pencil
What do you notice?
What do you wonder?
Activity 1 Lengths of Creepy, Crawly Things
We just saw a picture that showed a pencil that was the same length as the purple tower. Use connecting cubes to build a tower that is the same length as each creepy, crawly thing.
Activity 2 Measure More Creepy, Crawly Things
Use connecting cubes to find the length of more creepy, crawly things. First, measure on your own. Then compare your thinking with your partner. If you and your partner don’t agree on the length, work together to come to an agreement. Complete each statement with the number that makes it true.
Activity 3 Centers: Choice Time
Choose a center.
Five in a Row
Use connecting cubes to measure the length of each rectangle.
