Make measuring FUN with this cowboy themed, hands-on, nonstandard measurement activity! Students will work with a partner measuring the length of their partner's leg, arm, and overall height using the cowboy horses provided. They are then to work with their partners to:
ESTIMATE or make a guess before they measure
COMPARE results a very simple bar graph
RECORD their results and decide if their estimate was correct
In my 1st grade classroom my kids LOVE THIS. It is great for higher grades as well. We share the data as a class and we predict who will measure the highest, longest arm, etc. and then use a class graph to see if our class predictions are correct.
