The students use paper plates, Frisbees, laundry baskets, and themselves to “compete” in the “Measurement Olympics.” You will use gold medals as your non-standard unit of measure. This unit also provides a great way to teach students about sportsmanship. Record answers on individual recording sheets and on class charts for each event.
