non standard measurement freebie

Happy almost Friday! With only a few days left we are spending time brushing up on some old favorites from this year. This week we did a non-standard measurement refresher.

Since the kiddos mostly have this under their belts, we did a day of quick review and then a little fun :) I love any activity where the kids and get up and move or work in group, so we did a little of both!

I set up six stations: spider, penny, counter, cube, paperclip and bear. The kiddos used the sheet below to help guide them around the room. The only rules... 1) visit every station 2) measure something new at each station you visit ...  the kids were happy campers!

 They could choose to measure an anthology, book, glue bottle, marker, paintbrush,folder, pencil, or glue stick.

It was a fun activity to remind them all about non standard measurement :)

On a totally different note... Look what we saw on our field trip today

Honestly the ugliest fish I have ever seen... so ugly that he was actually cute!! :) I was enamored!

Have a great day!

Too cute! We're starting Unit 10 soon! I'm guessing we're both using the same curriculum! lol
