Working with Non Standard Forms of Measurement

How long is our bridge?
The children made some interesting suggestions to determine the length of their bridge;
they used a string, and their own bodies as tools for measurement. Using non standard forms of measurement is a precursor to formal skills in this area introduced later in the curriculum.

  1. This activity was a great way for the children to find another form of measurment to solve their problem. It was obvious their was no measuring tape present, so the children used themseleves as a form of measurement.~Sabrina
