Measurement Garden

I got this adorable Measurement Activity from Amy Lemons blog over at
I gave each student a different size piece of bulletin board paper. Their objective was to draw any type of flower that fit the height of their paper. After they had colored their flower they cut them out and were given a ruler. I asked "What is the best unit to measure your flower? Feet or Inches? Students discussed that their flower was larger so they would measure in feet and that their flowers were smaller so feet would be too big so they would measure in inches. It was a really fun activity and looks beautiful around our bathroom door!
The sticky notes are the measurements of their flower. Next year I am going to have them measure the stem, leaves, petals, height and width of their flower for more practice.
