Fourth-grade math students at Floresville North Elementary School participated in a “Millions to Measure” activity.
The students measured their own height in feet and inches. They then calculated how tall they were in total inches. After completing the conversion, the students chose a famous sports figure. They researched the sports figure’s height and converted it to total inches. The difference between the two measurements was then calculated. Strips of paper were used to model and compare the two heights.
The students thoroughly enjoyed learning about measurement conversions through this real-world, hands-on math activity.
