More Measurement

We are continuing to learn different ways to measure things.  Today we used 1 centimetre cubes to measure our hand-spans.  We remembered last week's key points.  
  • Use the same unit
  • Start at the start
  • Place the units end to end
Because we were using 1 centimetre  cubes, we now know how many centimetres our hands are from the tip of our little finger to the tip of our thumb, in a straight line. 

We discovered that 1 centimetre is about the same width as a finger so we went around the room trying to spot things that were close to 1 centimetre, then checking with our fingers.

I am really enjoying being back in Room 4 on Fridays.  See you next week.
