We have been looking at the ‘Measures’ strand in Mathematics over the last while.
We have been focusing on ‘Length’. We looked at a variety of objects in our classroom and compared the length of each. We made use of vocabulary such as ‘long’, ‘longer than’, ‘longest’, ‘short’, ‘shorter than’ and ‘shortest’.
We decided to predict how many cubes it would take to measure the length of selected classroom objects. We then tested our predictions in groups . We could not believe how many cubes it took to measure the length of our shoe!! We also couldn’t believe how many lollipop sticks it took to measure the length of our table to different parts of the classroom!
