Instructions
1) Open the "Jellybean Measure" worksheet in Tool Factory Word Processor.
2) Select FILE>SAVE AS and save the worksheet as the student's own.
3) Show the student how to click and drag the jellybeans at the top of the page under each item.

Have students measure objects around the classroom using cereal, candy, blocks, or noodles. Make sure that students use the same item (i.e. all jellybeans to measure the length of a pencil) to measure each object.
