Miss Challenge's Measurement Stations! This activity is such a favorite for all of the classes I teach. At each of the six stations, students complete a task that involves a type of candy or treat. Using these special 'mathematical tools', children estimate the distance between two objects and then measure to find the actual length. as they rotate through all the stations, it's amazing to watch the improvements in accuracy.
This motivating task can be used with so many classrooms in many different situations. It can also be extended and used as data for a graphing lesson. It's a can't-miss!
