Measuring using non-standard units

So far this week we have been comparing lengths in our maths lessons.

We started by using the words 'longer' and 'shorter' to compare our piece of ribbon with a friend's.

Next we used a straw and we found objects around the classroom that were longer nd shorter than the straw.

After that we used cubes to measure objects. We found items that were the same length as our towers of cubes.

Finally we measured larger objects in the classroom using our hands.

We realised that some objects were not exactly the same length as the units we were measuring with so we tried to think of ways to make our measuring more accurate.

Tomorrow we are going to be using rulers to  measure more accurately.
