Ice Cream Measuring

Who doesn't love ice cream?  For some reason I was craving it all day at school.  Maybe it was because the sun was shining and it was warm outside ... yahoo!  I think spring is finally here!  Lucky for me I had some frozen yogurt in the freezer at home ... yummy!

I'm starting to think about getting some warm weather math stations ready and dug out my ice cream measurement activity.

Here's what's included:
  • 12 ice cream and popsicle pictures to measure
  • 2 different sized ice cream non-standard rulers (for easy differentiation)
  • colored and black and white rulers (b&w ones are great for students to personalize and take home)
  • 2 recording sheets (one colored and one black and white)
  • an "I can..." card to build independence and keep students from asking "What do I do?"
warning - this activity will make your mouth water!

You can pick up a copy of this activity at my TPT store.

As usual, I will send a copy to the first 2 followers who comment on this post.
