Inch by Inch Centimeter by Centimeter

Found this cute activity over at

The students have already been learning about measurement (inches, feet, yards) and our next chapter is about metric units (centimeters, meters).

I read the story "Inch by Inch" by Leo Lionni to the students and showed them that the ruler is a measuring tool for both inches and centimeters.

Each student drew a picture of an animal onto their white paper. They colored, cut out, and measured the height and width of their animal in centimeters. Next year, I will have them measure in inches and centimeters to compare the different units.
