Title: Become a "ruler" of the ruler!
In order to practice basic sewing skills, students must be able to read and use a ruler for a variety of tasks. In this hands-on lesson, students will work collaboratively to demonstrate their mastery of how to read "English" units of measurements (inches). Students will learn how to read both 1/8" and 1/16" measurements through the use of yardsticks, rulers, and flexible measuring tape. This lesson can be used as part of a unit or as a remediation for students who will be using a ruler on assignments and projects.
