Measuring Freebie and a Sale!

Here's a peek inside our Math class from Friday.

We are estimating and making actual measurements using centimeters and inches. I decided to treat the kiddos since they have worked so hard all week. We measured Smarties and Gummy Worms, but you could use any type of candy at all. (That's just what happened to be handy when I stopped at Walgreens before school!)
First, they estimated the length of each piece of candy in centimeters and inches. Next, they recorded the actual measurements. After they made a record sheet to hold all the info, they got to eat their candy.

Have a wonderful weekend!

(If you are doing some planning for Valentine-themed activities, go check out my Teacher Pay Teachers store and Teachers Notebook Shop.
I'm running sales in both for Valentine- AND Snow-themed items. Click on the links in the right sidebar to shop!)
