Candy Heart Measurement

This week in 1st grade we are exploring the world on nonstandard measurement. Today just also happened to be Valentine's Day so I wanted to tie in some hands on fun with candy hearts. This activity was perfect for whole group instruction. It took us roughly 25 minutes to complete before we moved onto math stations for the day.

I gave each child their own individual box of candy hearts and they pulled various school supplies from their desk to practice measuring. We talked about the different lengths and then wrote our answers on recording sheet.

We also made estimates before measuring each object and then took turns sharing our results once they finished.

Once finished, they compared their results with their neighbor to see if anyone came up with a different result.
