Does It Measure Up?
- In Inch By Inch, the Inch Worm measures features of birds such as necks, feathers, legs, etc. but he is unable to measure the Nightingale's song.
- Have your students make a list/chart of things that can be measured vs. things that can't be measured. This is a good activity for early writers as they can simply write one or two words for each idea.
- If using this with older students, you may have them write a mini-essay about these categories and explain why things fit in each.
