Preschool Measurement Activities
In preschool and lower elementary our goal is to teach kids concepts. Especially when we are talking about math. Details like formulas and units of measurement are not our goal. We want kids to had a deep foundational understanding about a concept before we start focusing on the smaller details. In regards to measurement, we want our preschoolers to understand what the concept of measurement is before we focus in on details like the various units of measurement. Because of this we often measure with objects instead of using a ruler.
Back to School Preschool Activity
Your preschooler will measure the various school supplies items in this back to school themed activity. We used counting cubes for measuring, but any identically sized object will work. Mini erasers, pom poms, and beads are all great suggestions.
