# Lesson 8

Groups Up to 110

### Lesson Purpose

The purpose of this lesson is to measure length and count and read numbers to 110.

### Lesson Narrative

In previous units, students counted quantities and read and wrote numbers up to 99. In previous lessons, students measured the length of objects.

The purpose of this lesson is for students to count a quantity between 100 and 110. In the first activity, students measure how tall they are using base-ten cubes and represent their work in a way that makes sense to them. In the second activity, students make sense of representations of larger numbers. In the lesson synthesis, students learn that 10 tens is 100.
