Maths Linky - 27th October

Measuring Up Your Number

Collect as many tape measures (any variety) as possible - some shops have paper tape measures available for customers.
Use the tape measures to practice counting patterns - for example, count by 2's - starting at 20.
If you are using paper tape measures - use different coloured pencils/textas to mark different patterns.
If using a metal tape measure - use whiteboard markers.
Students can work individually, with a partner who has the same counting goals, or in a small group.
This is a great way to visually explore patterns, can be extended to include fractions and... the longer the tape measure - the further the explorations can go!
(Thank you to Cathy T for planting the seed for this Linky!)
