Students will develop their ability to measure using informal units with this fun activity.
To use cut out the images, and provide each student with their own recording sheet and a range of units of measurement (examples include blocks, MAB units, paperclips, match sticks). They will then select an item to use when measuring each picture.
Themes included are: farm, transport and under the sea.
Using non-standard units of measurement is a great precursor for formal measurement lessons.
