More Measurement Fun

Today we created measurement gardens.  The students were given a large piece of white paper with 6 rectangles on it.

Students were asked to draw flowers in each of the rectangles.

Students then received a blue piece of construction paper for the background and a piece of green paper for the grass.

Next, the students glued their flowers onto their papers.  The grade 1's measured their flowers with cubes and the grade 2 students measured their flowers in centimeters.

Lastly, the student's wrote their measurements on their papers.


  1. I like how the first graders used cubes and the second graders used centimeters. In the USA we learn to measure in inches and in centimeters but we mostly use inches.
