Measuring things big and small

This week we have been learning about how to measure  different objects. We had to think about what we could use to work out how big an object was and how to compare its size to other objects.

When we were measuring something big like a castle we used our feet, hands or whole bodies.

When we measured smaller objects in the classroom we used cubes.

We discovered that to measure accurately we had to make sure there were no spaces and to compare the size of two objects we had to measure them both with the same measurement tool.
