This is a fun book for students to read that helps them learn about both standard and nonstandard measurement. In the story, a little girl is given a homework assignment to measure things. She decides to measure her dog. The little girl measures things with both a regular ruler and other nonconventional items such as Q-tips, dog treats, and other things that can be found around the house. You could use this to do an activity with your students by bringing in some of these items and asking them to go around the room and measure things with them. For example how many dog biscuits long is the SmartBoard? Or how many Q-tips does it take to get from one side of the room to the other? Students will have lots of fun with these activities and be learning about different types of measurement as well.
