We have been working on measurement this last six weeks. Here are some of the activities we have done so far:
We used Twizzlers as our measuring sticks and found objects around our classroom that are longer/shorter/same length as our Twizzler.
We brought stuffed animal pets from home and worked in small groups to weigh them on our balance scales. Then we ordered them from lightest to heaviest.
We used our shoes to find the area of large fish, turtle, starfish, and whale cut outs.
We found the capactiy of small paper cups using goldfish crackers, shell pasta, and star cereal.
