Measuring in 1/2ST


Posted by reneetimion | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on May 17, 2016

Today we began measurement in 1/2ST. We learned about ‘length’, ‘width’ and how to measure an object correctly. We practised choosing an appropriate unit of measure – for example, a ‘formal’ or ‘informal’ unit. Some formal units we used were rulers and centimetres and metres. Some informal units we used were counters, plastic bugs, unifix, tubs, textas, scissors and many more! A challenge was then set to measure the width of the room. Some clever students found out that it took 20 reading tubs. The reading tubs were 34cms in length each – can you figure out how many centimetres or metres our room is!?
