We had a week of learning about measurements. We started off observing different objects and seeing which ones are shorter and which ones are longer. This was very simple, but the children enjoyed it very much.
Each player then takes turns until one player reaches the tail of the worm on the game board. That player is the winner.
Fun? You betcha!
The children really couldn't get enough of this game, so after we played it a few times, we then played it again using the centimeter side of our ruler.
We also went around the house measuring different larger objects using a yard stick and non-standard measurements, such as, our hands. We also read lots of library books about the other types of measurements.
To end our week of measurements, we made a cake where I let the children measure out the ingredients and mix up the batter.
This was another fun week of math.
I couldn't be more pleased and the kids couldn't have more fun learning.
