Measuring madness

Filed under: General News — Miss Davis at 1:40 pm on Tuesday, June 19, 2018

This morning we have been learning how to measure! We started our lesson by discussing why we measure, how we can measure and what’s best to use to measure? The children were very good and could explain how tall, long and wide different objects were. We started out hunt on the playground, working in pairs the children used their hands to measure different objects. When we got back to class we used classroom objects to measure different items.

What method of measuring do you think was best?

Can you think of any other ways to measure?

I have seen measuring with hands in the pics .I thought of another method which is we can measure with foot.
1. How many feet’s length we have from Classroom to play area?
2. How many feet length from classroom to Hall?
They did really good job in pics xx. Thank you (Jovita’s mom).

I think that the best method of measuring was the glue stick.
We can measure with paper.

I really enjoyed measuring with my hands.
We could try measuring with our shoes, as there are allot of feet on our classroom 🤣
