Second Graders Measure Real Life Objects

Second graders were learning about metric measurement in math class.  What a better way to learn about centimeters and meters than to actually measure a variety of objects.

They were measuring the length of the classroom in the picture.  They found the meter stick was a better tool to use rather than the centimeter ruler.  They also measured the desk, some pencils, and a book.  They chose the best measurement instrument to use depending on the object.  They have used customary and metric units in the measurement chapter in math.  It was fun to learn how to read the different rulers and meter sticks by measuring real life objects.
