Make math meaningful with this measurement scavenger hunt activity. Students will love being able to get moving while measuring different classroom items using non-standard, commonly found classroom items. Students are encouraged to work with a partner while completing this task. The cooperative learning potential here is great and my 1st graders truly love this engaging math activity!
This is Common Core aligned with part of CCSS.Math.Content.1.MD.A.2 - "Express the length of an object as a whole number of length units, by laying multiple copies of a shorter object (the length unit) end to end; understand that the length measurement of an object is the number of same-size length units that span it with no gaps or overlaps."
Enjoy this fun and interactive measuring activity!
