Measurement Activities! Measurement Activities!

I think teaching measurement should be fun because there are so many real world questions kids ask every day that are answered using the vocabulary and concepts of measurement.
- How big am I? How tall? How much do I weigh? How about her?
- They run fast! Who runs faster? How do we know? How much faster? How far did we run?
- How big is our classroom? How big is my house?This great package of measurement games will get your students asking those same kinds of real world questions. And the games give them fun and creative ways to answer them. Of course they are simple to play and adaptable to any age group (they recommend these measurement activities for 2nd through 8th grade).

It's called the "Focus On Measurement Bundle". There are 28 games in all.

Here's some of my personal favorites:

- figuring out how tall is the Eiffel Tower
- finding things that are one meter long
- how long can you make a chain using one piece of paper?
- a card game that teaches you how to shade in a specific area

And there are many more. How many? Let me measure: 24 more to be exact.

There's another one where students visually estimate the length of another student's arms and legs. It got me wondering about how well (or not) I can estimate the length of things. And I'll bet that game could fire up the imagination of your students to try to guess the length of things they see all over the place.

And not only length, but weight, speed, temperature, time, and the other things we can measure.

One of the games has you measure the edible part of an apple. You weigh it whole. Then you eat the apple (except the core, of course). Then you measure what's left. I'm thinking of doing that with as many different kinds of fruit and veggies we could get. Combine teaching measurement with teaching healthy eating!

Another idea in this bundle that I think is brilliant is the idea of using sporting events (Measurement Olympics is the name) as measurement activities. That's what sporting events are! How fast, how high, how strong? How many and who has more? This idea is very adaptable, as you can imagine.

Anyway, I could go on and on about these measurement games and activities. I highly recommend them to any teacher!
