Non-standard measurement playtime

One of the toughest concepts for a child is non-standard measurement.  Maybe because they have a hard time estimating or maybe because we change the measuring instrument from small things to larger. Well, we have been busy in science talking about measuring different things and changing the measuring tool.  We have worked with links, pretzels, and even tile pieces.  Take a look at our scientists at work measuring.  At one point, we had to predict how many pretzel sticks it would take to measure the length of a rake.  Do you have an estimate?  Check back next week and see if your estimate comes close.
