Today we created measurement gardens. The students were given a large piece of white paper with 6 rectangles on it.
Students were asked to draw flowers in each of the rectangles.
Students then received a blue piece of construction paper for the background and a piece of green paper for the grass.
Next, the students glued their flowers onto their papers. The grade 1's measured their flowers with cubes and the grade 2 students measured their flowers in centimeters.
Lastly, the student's wrote their measurements on their papers.
