How Big is a Foot? lesson plans

I need to create a lesson plan for second grade based on the book "How Big is a Foot?" Any ideas for activities and related assessments, including a rubric?

Have them trace their feet on paper, cut out and use as 'non-standard' units of measure...compare measurements..student A may have measured the side of the carpet as 40 feet, student B may measure the same carpet side as 47 feet...have students write about their math thinking...

That's exactly what I do. Then we discuss why a foot was created! The students love it.

As an assessment, you could have them measure objects or write about why we need a standard unit of measurement.
