I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream measuring activities this spring. Measure the fun as this center meets Common Core State Standards for measurement using non-standard units and rulers.
Included:3 Ice Cream Measuring Stations
7 or 8 ice cream treats of assorted sizes to measure
3 Recording sheets with differentiated levels
2 non-standard unit measuring tools (cones or cherries) with the third activity being measured with real rulers you will have to supply.
Bonus Activity includes:
Prices to print onto address labels to adhere to the back of the cards of ice cream treats. Students then have a Treat Worksheet that they can use to add up the cost of two treats (adding 2- two digit addends without regrouping).
Copy, put on labels, laminate, cut and learn.
1.MD.A.1: Order three objects by length.
1.MD.A.2: Express the length of an object as a whole number of length units, understand that the length measurement of an object is the number of same-size length units that span it with no gaps or overlaps.
1.NBT.C.4: Add within 100. Understand that in addint two-digit numbers, one adds tens and tens, ones and ones.
Students won't be asking, "What can I do know?" as this measurement activity can help them practice their skills at adding as well. Add hands-on coins to the center and you could have an Ice Cream Shop of your own for the kids to enjoy.
I hope this is something that you have wished for.
I didn't have much in my Math Station for measuring before. Now the kids are loving it.
