This is great for Kindergarten or 1st grade.
Option 1- Have the objects prepared in a basket at each group table or with a partner. Have them guess how many inches they think he each will be before they pick up their rulers.
Option 2- Have the children go on a scavenger hunt with a partner to find the objects in the classroom. Have them guess how many inches they think he object will be before they go on the hunt.
This would also work great for kindergarten by measuring with gummy bears.
Could also work with centimeters too.
