This seasonal book is perfect for integrating math, art, and writing lessons.
For this math lesson we used our rulers to measure our own geometric trees using inches and centimeters. Day 2 found us completing a mini take home book and a worksheet measuring the various character's trees, recording our answers and then using this information for some triangle tree drawing & solving word problems using many key words as guides to what operation to use to find the difference between two trees or the total of others.
Using a ruler was new for some so we began practicing measuring many items in the room and watching a simple video on where to place your ruler as many started measuring an item in the middle of a ruler.
Placing a ruler at the bottom of the tree using centimeters and inches.
3 geomtric shapes made a tree hich we then measured.
