Measuring Length With Unifix Cubes
Grace loves her unifix cubes and I love them too because there is so much that Grace can learn from them. This morning Grace & I explored length/height in detail. We walked around our house and grouped items together that were long and items that were short. We then compared the length of all of our items. Grace thought this was so much fun. We then used to unifix cubes to create towers that corresponded to the length of the items. Finally, we measured Grace and Ella's height using the cubes. We counted the cubes and found that Grace is 45 unifix cubes tall and Ella is approximately 11 unifix cubes in length!
