Weird Units - Measuring
You need to be a member to download this file.

This is a fun activity to experiment with measuring and units of measure. Children will find objects to measure in your outdoor space, however instead of using standard units of measure, they'll create their own wonderful units of measure, for example, leaves. If they chose leaves as their units of measurement they'd use a leaf to measure the item and record their answers in the table. As an extension students can convert their 'weird units' to cm.
