I don’t know about where you live, but there is something about snow in the South that has people getting bread, milk, and measuring tapes! We recently had a pretty good amount of snow for North Georgia (although it was melted within two days…womp womp). All over Facebook, people were posting their measurements of the snow. I took this opportunity to make a measurement freebie with a snow day theme. But, first, some pictures of this “fabulous” snow!
Here is a night time shot of the snow measurement in my city.
And a early morning shot to show the night time accumulation.
And, yes, that is something to post about on Facebook in these parts. 😉
After looking at these pictures, I started thinking this was a perfect math application of measuring, reading a ruler, determining fractional amounts on a ruler, subtracting fractional amounts to determine the night time accumulation. We have been working on fraction computation, so I decided to whip up a measurement freebie printable to have my students show what they know.
This will be a great way to “break the ice” when we return from almost a week off of school!
