Hello my Grade 2 mathematicians! I hope you had some fun in the snow! :)
Put your thinking caps on for this one... What's the tastiest unit of measurement? ...
Millimeter (mm)!! LOL
Today we are starting our measurement unit! You will need spaghetti, macaroni and rice to use for the math!
a) Please select 5 small items from your kitchen…it could be a fork, spoon, spatula, plate, bowl, loaf of bread, cereal box etc. and measure each item first with the macaroni, then with the spaghetti and lastly with the rice. For example…lay a wooden spoon on a counter and line up the macaroni so that they touch (I couldn’t get my pictures of macaroni to touch) to see how many macaroni will fit side by side to equal the same length as the wooden spoon. If my macaroni were touching there would be 12 I figure. (please check email for the picture of spoon and macaroni)
On a piece of paper, write down your findings like this: (you can make a chart if you want)
Wooden spoon = 12 macaroni 1 spaghetti 30 rice
a) Please select 2 big items like your stove, fridge, dishwasher, island, table etc. and measure each item first with the macaroni, then with the spaghetti and lastly with the rice. Then write down your findings.
Have fun with measuring your items!! If you can, take pictures and send them to my email so I can see how you’re doing!!!
