A game I purchased that is called How Tall Am I is a fun measurement activity. HERE WAS CENTER 1- LENGTH MEASUREMENT USING INCHES.
|It's a fun inch measuring game called "How Tall Am I?" Lots of fun mis-matching layers of fun people to get a total "height" in inches....|
|They used inch and centimeter rulers to measure the totem poles of wacky people they made....It's a fun measurement game my kids love to play on rainy days.|
|I also have some "gram" measurement weights that kids could use the next time we do measurement centers.|
|I had cylinders to show volume and the kids added "cups" to the cylinder to get used to the terms volume and cups. And that 2 cups make a pint.|
|I borrowed a gallon, quart, pint and cup measuring set from my coworker down the hall who purchased one a few years back. Here the kids are doing some estimation pages on cups and pints.|
|A set similar to this was set out at a center all week too. Nobody paid much attention to it, but I was NOT going to add water or anything crazy like that. I'm sure it would have made it more popular though....hehe...|
|I think you can find these worms and the cards below at any teacher supply store.|
|I combine worms to use rulers to measure in inches and centimeters.. I also bought a class set of measuring worm cards for kids to follow the directions and measure items on the cards.|
|The last center was to work as partners with my class set of measuring tapes. The assignment was to measure 5 big things in the classroom using feet, inches and yards and write the totals down to compare with the whole class later.|
|Capacity Man, or Gallon Guy....lots of fun!|
|Gallon Guy is Great for teaching volume in cups, pints, quarts and gallons or if you want a great enrichment activity!|
|But not quite as "COOL" as these guys....all dressed up for 80s Days yesterday!|
|Do the 80s remind you of the 50s? You should have seen the Fonzi type hair and|
rolled up pants....too cute!
