Children Always Find Interesting Ways...

Practicing early math skills doesn't have to be tedious for young children. When this snowman was made using "Loose Materials" the children commented that he was a "big snowman."
"Just how big is he?" asked their teacher. "How can we measure him?"
The children decided to use their hands and their shoes as their non standard measuring tools.

  1. This is a really interesting measuring way. Even the children are small, they still can found out their own ways to resolve the problems. They can use their hands, feet, even shoes...What a great ideas!!
