ORDERING AND SEQUENCING NUMBERS
The BIGGEST Smile
This week we have been learning about LENGTH. We have looked at informal (unifix, paperclips, minis) and formal (ruler, metre ruler, tape measure) units of measurement.
Students today had to find out who has the biggest smile. They had to choose what they would use to measure their BIG smile. After some discussion string was mentioned. Students then had to measure their string in centimetres.
We had lots of FUN!!!
Here are some photos of what we did.
Can you smile really big? How big is YOUR biggest smile? We would love to hear about YOUR big smile! Please tell us how you measured your BIGGEST smile.
