Learning about measurement can be a fun and easy process for students, using the book Measuring Penny by Loreen Leddy.  This blog post will have kids measuring pets, stuffed animals and objects around the house in a variety of ways to create a presentation (printable or digital) that will provide a fun and education project to share with the class.

Measuring Penny book for measurement lesson

Just like the teacher in the book, you could assign your students the homework to measure anything… pet, stuffed animal, or anything around the house.  Students will measure it in as many ways as possible: height, width, length, weight, volume, temperature and time.  The will use standard and non-standard units of measurement.

Students will take photos of object that they measured and create a powerpoint or poster share their project with the class. This is a great family homework assignment!
