Cut Once, Measure Twice  - Measurement Tools and Tips!

Children are quick to use measurement language as it relates to their activities and play. They compare their heights; argue over whose tower is taller, who has more cookies, and who's fastest. We learn to measure size, time, distance, weight, and capacity. Some children's picture books do a great job of exploring these concepts. Talk to your class about where the measuring tools should be kept. If they are interested in measuring the heights of their towers, put tape measures in the block area; if they want to compare the weight of 2 rocks, bring a balance scale outside.
