The children have been doing a lot of sorting this week. Today, we sorted our feet! One shoe and one sock was taken off, then the foot was drawn around, cut out and measured using Multilink cubes. Once this had been done, the children had to find others with the same length feet and get in a group. Then all of the cut out paper feet were placed in a row so that we could see who had the shortest feet and who had the longest. We also found out how many children had the same size feet and which length was the most popular.
One child's foot was 10 multilink cubes long, two children's feet were 7 multilink cubes long, eight children's feet were 8 multilink cubes long and eight children's feet were 9 multilink cubes long.
We had a lot of fun gathering the information, sorting it out and then finding out the results.
