Length Comparison - Write the Room

Students will compare the length of two different collections of items to determine which is longer/shorter. Once they have worked this out they will mark it on their recording sheet, either by colouring in the correct picture or using a bingo dobber.

You may like to hide the pictures around the classroom and create a write the room activity using these measurement cards.

There is a set of cards for 'longer than' and a separate set of cards for 'shorter than'.

Measurement equipment you will need include:

· paperclips

· matchsticks 

· unifex blocks 

· base 10 units 

· plastic teddy bear counters 

· pencils
