READING/ART/MATH
Inch by Inch

This book finishes by reading, "He measured and measured…inch by inch…until he inched out of sight." Ask your students, "What do you think this inch worm measured next?" or "Where do you think he went?" Then have each student make his own inch worm by cutting out a 5" worm from green construction paper. Then invite students to choose several items around them to measure. Some may choose books, pencils, paper, or desks. Others may choose to measure windows, doorways, or chalkboards. Have them keep a running list. Then post their results on a bulletin board that says, "And the next thing the inch worm measured was our classroom!"
