For our new math unit, we will be learning all about different ways to measure things around us.  Below is a quick video that will get you thinking about all of the things  that can be measured in the world around you!  Can you add other ideas to the list?  Look around your home with Mom and Dad and share with us all the things you can measure and the tools you would use to measure each one.  We are excited to see what you find out!

 To kick our inquiry into this unit the children were asked to complete the challenge below.  It was amazing to see them find creative ways to complete their challenge, as well as, problem solve when needed.

Below are some images of the children using team work to complete their challenge.  Please share with us some of the challenges that occurred during your challenge today.  How did you solve your problem?
