Measuring using rulers

Published Tuesday, January 18, 2011.
Last updated: Tuesday, January 18, 2011

The children were investigating objects around the classroom using rulers today, learning about the concept of measuring using standard units (centimetres).

First of all they worked in pairs (Talk Partners) to find one object to bring back to the carpet. Once every pair had chosen their item, they worked together to compare them and put them in size order from the biggest to the smallest.

Then it was time to get the rulers out!!

In their Talk Partners, the children had to use their rulers to find objects that were 10cm long. These could be objects that they found to be the correct length as well as those that they made out of Lego, play dough etc. There was a lot of discussion to be had and comparisons to be made while using the rulers, as their collections grew. They were aided by the fact that the rulers they were measuring with had 10cm marks on them that provided a good gauge for their accuracy. Once the time was up we took photos of the children with their "treasure"!

The afternoon was great fun and went by so quickly. The children's accuracy was really good and you could hear and see them discarding objects because they were either slightly too long, or too short.

Well done, 1S!
