The Long and Short of Measurement Games
Measurement games build an understanding of how different objects relate to one another. You can even have your children measure themselves and each other to help drive home the notion that different heights correspond to different numbers in feet and inches. For individualized learning time, utilize several free measurement games through your basic membership at Education.com that enhance your students’ understanding of dimensions through play. Before you set students out on a self-guided exploration of measurement games, it can be helpful to let them practice their counting skills with counting games
. When they are ready to proceed, help your students study by playing singly, in pairs, or in small groups on phones, tablets, or computers. After a little bit of practice and a lot of fun, your students will soon be asking for rulers to start measuring everything around the classroom and possibly even outside, too.
