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.
This was the perfect activity to keep them engaged on such a crazy day. You can click here to download this resource. There are 2 different recording sheets available.
