Measurement Activity Pack- Featured Book The Gingerbread Girl Goes Animal Crackers

$10.00

Providing measurement math focused activities for preK- grade 2, it starts by providing a dramatic play invitation to “make gingerbread cookies” using a sensory bin and different measuring tools.  Then, we work on different measurement comparison activities and using descriptive language such as “shorter, longer, shortest”.  When we’ve mastered that, we move on to nonstandard measurement. When we’ve finished with non-standard measurement, we start measuring longer distances with standard measuring tools, talk about different measuring tools,  and finally, compare different object measurements to collect data on which is longer.
