Measuring Length

We have started a new unit in Math this week! We started looking at measuring length. We figured out that length means 'how long something is'. Today, we looked at how tall we are by cutting pieces of string to represent our length. Then we took the string and measured its length using a variety of good measuring tools. Before we started measuring, we brainstormed a list of possible tools that would work to measure length. Here are some of our tools that can work well:

- connecting cubes
- square tiles
- paper clips
- makers
- paper
- rulers

Here are some pictures of us measuring the length of our string-height.
