How do I know how tall my snow man is? students will answer that they have to add all three circles. I have three numbers to add. How do I do that? students will respond with adding the two numbers then adding the answer with the third number.

Instructional Procedure
On each group table there are circles in different sizes, a ruler and an activity sheet. As a group you will decide who is the builder, the measurer, the recorder, and the adder. You will measure three different circles and write them in each circle of your activity sheet. The adder will then add up the circles to figure out how tall the snow man is. You will make three different snow men and put them in order from the shortest to the tallest. Dont forget, this is your snow man, so you can make it which ever way you want. Teacher also has written directions on each table
