On Tuesday we measured things to find out which things are about one metre. We used a piece of string that was one metre long and worked with a partner to find things in our room and playground that are about one metre.
On Wednesday we measured things that were about two metres. We measured across, along and around objects with our metre strings. We found that we had to use keep our finger in place when measuring so that we knew where to start measuring the second metre.
We learnt that the kangaroo and emu can both grow to about 2 metres tall. We used our strings to measure and draw kangaroos and emus that were 2 metres tall.
Who knew measuring could be so much fun?
What else can you find that is about one metre or about two metres?
What did you use to measure?
