Getting creative with measurement

338 0

As students in Grade 2 explore measurement, they were challenged to use non-standard units of measurement to measure various objects around the classroom. They were given a string (1m), a popsicle stick (1 dm), and a centicube (1cm). In groups, they had to decide the best way to measure the various lengths of objects and record their information. This activity gave students experience measuring objects in real-life, and challenged their thinking skills as they had to get creative to measure objects bigger than their supplies.

About The Author

My name is Shannon Neill and I am currently the Grade 1/2 teacher at AcadeCap. I began my teaching career in 2017 after graduating from McGill University with a Bachelor’s of Education, specialized in French Immersion Pedagogy. Since my first year of teaching, I have been working with Grade 1 and 2 students, from Montreal, to Winnipeg, and now Ottawa, where I have been with AcadeCap since 2018. Working with students in Grade 1 and 2 is definitely something special. The students are curious, honest and so willing to learn and share - I consider myself pretty lucky to be able to learn from my students every day!
