Length; nice practical activities for my reception class....

Discussion in 'Early Years' started by pkltw3, Jan 28, 2009.

  1. Im just putting some ideas together for my numeracy planning for next week on length. Has any one done any nice activities? I thought a nice one would be for the children to lie on the ground and their buddy measures how long they are using non standard units; feet, cubes, straws etc? I would love to change my numeracy display in my class and do it on this topic but i am struggling on ideas for an effective interactive display that the ch can use? Any ideas really would be appreciated :)

    We got ours to cut some wool/string and then they had to go around the classroom and find things that we longer/shorter/same length and then compare and talk about it.
  6. I love the sound of this- would it be possible to send me a photo.
    Thank you
