Maths - Measuring Length

Find objects around your home and measure their length. STEPS: 1. Using duplo, lego, or any other blocks that connect, make a 'ruler' that will become your measuring tool. (Extension: use a cm ruler) 2. Collect some objects in your home. Estimate and then measure their length. Draw the object in your book and record its length. For example: The water bottle is 13 blocks long 3. Compare the objects that you measured. Which object was the longest? Which object was the shortest? 4. Extension: Order all your objects starting from the shortest to the longest. 5. Press add and share your work photo 💭Learning Intention: To use informal or formal units to measure different sized objects around the home and compare their sizes. ⭐Success Criteria: I can understand which objects are longer and shorter when comparing them. I can use a measuring tool to measure different sized objects and order them from shortest to longest. (The attached template is just an example and you do not need to fill this sheet in nor measure the same items shown on the sheet.)
