Time to get measuring!
FYI this is activity is for measuring centimetres!
This is a great way to introduce your students to standard units of measurement. This is a simple, teacher-led activity that can be done in small groups.
- 5 measurement cards (5 different objects to measure)
- Measurement/predictions recording sheet
The children first guess which objects they think are the longest/shortest. They then take turns measuring the objects on the cards and record their answers.
