This morning the kids began thinking about measurement. They were given the following question to explore: “What can we measure about something?” For this activity the children had some independent thinking time where they began to add their thoughts on the posed question. After some time, we came together as a whole class to share our ideas with each other. We then began to add new ideas that were derived from our whole class sharing time. Below is the brainstorm that the ‘Cool Cats’ created collaboratively. As we move forward, the children will begin to think about the types of “measuring tools” that would be used to measure the particular elements listed. If your child has any “measurement tools” at home that they would like to bring in to share with the class, they are welcome to do so. The kids are VERY excited to continue investigating the concept of measurement!
