Measurement in Grade One

We are learning all about measurement.

Today we measured our shoes using formal units (centimeters) and informal units (unifix cubes).

We measured the length, width and capacity. Some of us even measured the perimeter and area of our shoes.

We made a big chart showing our data.

It was great fun. We will add some photos soon!!

Do you know how many centimetres are in a metre?

Can you remember the length, width or capacity of your shoe? (remember to say which unit of measurement you used?)

Who has smaller/bigger shoes than you?




More Measurement…

Some equipment we used in the classroom, corridor and chuck run on Friday afternoon:

  • Measuring tapes
  • Meter rulers
  • Our bodies
  • Paper airplanes
  • Landing strip
  • Chalk

What did you use?            

What did you find out?      

What do we need to remember when measuring?

Cinderella find your fella… A fairytale Maths activitity!

Today we measured our shoes.

We were trying to find someone with the same size shoes. It had to be the perfect match- just like Cinderella!

There were so many ways of measuring and comparing.

We managed to use all of the Maths equipment – cubes, counters, rulers, icy pole sticks, coins….

Some of us measured the insides of our shoes, it was tricky.

Holly (the charming prince) and Jordyn (Cinderella) even fitted on each others shoes, just to be sure!

Kate thought at the end of the day that we had “forgotten to do Maths”!

What did you use to measure?

Who had the same/ bigger/ smaller sized shoes?

How big were YOUR shoes?
