Target Measurements (2–5)

## Stage 1: Inches and Centimeters

### Narrative

Students try to draw a line segment as close as possible to the length of the target measurement (in whole inches or centimeters).

## Stage 2: Quarter Inches

### Narrative

Students try to draw a line segment as close as possible to the length of the target measurement (in quarter inches).

## Stage 3: Eighth Inches

### Narrative

Students try to draw a line segment as close as possible to the length of the target measurement (in eighth inches).

## Stage 4: Degrees

### Narrative

Students estimate angle measurement and then use a protractor to find the exact measurement.

## Stage 5: Fractions of Angles

### Narrative

Students spin a spinner to get a denominator for their target fraction. They choose a fraction less than one with that denominator and estimate an angle measurement that is the target fraction amount of 180. (For example, if a student gives a target fraction of ⅚, they estimate when they think the angle is 150 degrees.) Then students use a protractor to find the exact measurement.
