Measuring Up!

Leave a comment


We had a shoe extravaganza this afternoon!  We each took off one shoe and tossed it into a giant shoe pile.  The children then helped me figure out what kinds of shoes we had.  We made a list of the different types on a large sheet of paper and sorted them into the appropriate groups.  Then, we realized that there were other ways to sort them as well.  We sorted by color, by size, and by the presence of tongues.

Our next task was to use the shoes to measure our friends.  Each took a turn lying on the carpet while a friend lined shoes up beside them to see “how many tall” we were.  Almost all of us were either 5 or 6 shoes long.  We recorded our investigation by drawing a picture of the person we measured along with the appropriate number of shoes.
