Give Them a Foot…

Fourth graders are all working on measurement in their math classes these days. But, since we regroup and switch classes for math, many of them travel down the hall to work with different teachers.

Kids in Mr. Brown’s math class had a fun day today finding the linear measurement of everything in sight with either rulers orĀ  yard sticks. They found the lengths or widths of pencils, lockers, books and even the hallway(everyone’s favorite).

Next we’ll move on to standard measurement of mass, capacity and temperature. Then it’s on to the metric system.

You can work with your fourth grader on measurement at home. Try having them estimate lengths, widths, weights, and temperatures. Then use measurement tools to find the actual answer.
