Measuring in Senior Infants

We have been busy measuring in Maths over the past few days with informal units of measurement (such as measuring with cubes, lollipop sticks and handspans). An important part of this activity is estimating first what we think the answer is going to be. It was great fun guessing beforehand and it didn't matter if our guess was right or wrong. We did our best to make a sensible guess. Once we made our guess and recorded it we then measured the object to see if our answer was correct. We worked individually at times and we also worked with a partner. Have a look at us at busy at work!!!
