    Memorizing Inches, Feet, Yards
    By Bob

    Clip to ScrapBook
    In my first measurement lessons, I buy cheap yardsticks (the rougher the wood, the better they work). The students color each foot a different color. Wal-Mart brand has worked well, but my best yardsticks were found at a surplus hardware store. I use straight pins to display them on the bulletin board before sending home; in our area, sticks cannot be sent home on busses, but this unit falls near a parent/student night, and bussed students take them home, then.
    Also, would this rhyme help anyone?
    12 inches in a foot
    3 feet in a yard
    A yard is 36 inches
    Now that's not hard
    We'll go on a measuring spree
    (Point) Be my partner
    You can measure with me
