Measuring and Creating a Line Plot

We are wrapping up our unit about measuring in inches and centimeters. Pairs of students were asked to measure 10 items in the classroom that were less than 1 foot (good estimating practice because before they could start they needed to create a list of what they planned to measure). Once their list was created they measured the items and recorded their length. If an item was greater than a foot they needed to find an alternate object to measure. After all the measuring was complete the pair created a line plot on an app of their choice (most used Drawing Pad or My Story) showing the length of their objects. Finally, pairs shared their line plots with each other and made statements about their findings.
