Measure Me!

Illustrative MathematicsVaries

The purpose of this task is for students to measure something that interests them (namely themselves) by laying multiple copies of a shorter object that represents the length unit end to end. This task provides students an opportunity to discuss the need to be careful when measuring as it is very likely that some of them will get incorrect comparisons of their leg length with their partner's leg length. With some body parts, it's not clear where to begin and end the measurements. This is a good opportunity to help the students think more precisely about how to define the 'beginning and endings' more precisely.
