We have had a wonderful few days measuring all sorts of things in Year 2, so this week's challenge was beautifully timed. We had to find a range of interesting items in our class that were longer or shorter than 20c.m.
So, armed with rulers and 20c.m. strips we set about hunting and measuring. Here ar some of the results:
Shorter than 20c.m.
a glue stick, pen lid, finger, a spelling book, a blue pen and a post-it note.
Longer than 20 c.m.
an arm, the table, a chair, table leg, the classroom, a banana, a whiteboard, a book and a carpet square.
