Yesterday during math we discussed perimeter and area. We used Cheez-its to help us measure the area of various plane shapes. As an extension, we used "big" Cheez-its to help us make comparisons. We use Envisions math curriculum as our primary source, but we are always looking for innovative ways to enhance instruction. The kids absolutely loved using the Cheez-its!
We completed our independent practice with color tiles.
Here are a few additional measurement tools that we've used!
Finally, here is a fun math activity that we'll probably complete as a review activity on our spring party day. You need just a few items!
It's called "delicious dominoes." If you have any chocolate allergies, you'll need regular graham crackers.
