Measuring ourselves and toys… Fun with maths

Measuring ourselves and toys… Fun with maths

Category : Grade 1 & 2's

Have you ever tried to measure yourself or a toy without using rulers?

That was the challenge our students had to think about…

Amidst the the fun and laughs, our students chose a unit of measure like counters and blocks, estimated how many they would need to measure themselves, then worked together co-operatively to find an accurate measure.

Finally, our students had to make a home for a toy… some made a hanger for an aeroplane, others a garage for a truck and some a bedroom for a very sleepy animal toy.
