Math Investigation: Length

Even though we didn't get a chance to observe this lesson during our visit, I thought it was a good reminder of what a good math investigation looks like.

This display was also a great example of how we can use our students as the context for learning.  The measurement strand really allows for students to discover things about themselves and prompt further questions for future investigations.

Whole class activity.

Students had the chance to connect the whole class lesson to themselves by measuring the length of their own shoe!
