Larks today were learning about length. We used non standard units to measure different things in our classroom. The non standard units we used were lego dots, blocks, counters and popsicle sticks.
Here is a picture of a person we drew around, we are measuring the arms, legs, fingers, head, ponytail, feet and neck in blocks.
We also had car races on the tiles in the hallways around school, the hallways were perfect because we could use the tiles to count how far our cars had gone and the cars went really fast on the tiles. We were having so much fun with the cars that we forgot to take photos!
Tell us in the comments below how you have used non standard measure before.
