In this activity, learners will be working with predictions with a time frame of one week, or longer. Start by planting seedlings.
In this activity, learners investigate whether more people are squares or rectangles. People with similarly sized heights and arm spans are classified as squares.
Create a “Find Someone” list, with about 10 items, each containing a shape, number, or measurement. Can you find someone in the group with hair about 4 inches long? Someone wearing parallel lines?
In this activity, learners will build the highest tower they can out of recycled materials.
In this activity, learners keep track of how much paper the group uses in a week. Build awareness of paper waste, while strengthening measurement and estimation skills.
In this activity, learners build a tool called an inclinometer that can find the height of any distant object, from a tree to the North Star.
In this health activity (page 5 of the PDF), learners will explore a unique connection betweeen the bones of the body.
In this graphing exercise (page 2 of the pdf), learners compare their own height to the length of various sharks.
In this activity, learners will decide together on a question about how far, long or high the group could reach together.
In this activity, learners follow clues to find five puzzle pieces, then assemble them. This activity works well with a whole group, individuals, or families.
In this activity related to Archimedes' Principle, learners use water displacement to compare the volume of an expanded gummy bear with a gummy bear in its original condition.
In this activity, learners use recycled materials to build a bridge that holds as many potatoes as possible. They investigate weight, height, strength, and measurement as they seek design solutions.
In this activity (located on page 2 of the PDF under GPS: Temperate Rain Forest Activity), learners will identify a group of deciduous trees to study.
In this math activity, learners pretend there is a special store that lets you pay for toys by their height in pennies.
In this simple and fun activity, learners build a tower of cups to explore distribution of weight. Learners make predictions about their towers and test their designs.
In this activity, young learners use different-sized paper 'caterpillars' and various household items to predict and measure their height.
In this coin math activity, learners sort and stack 100 (one hundred) pennies into piles of 5 pennies each, 10 pennies each, and 20 pennies each.
In this activity, learners mark their height on a height chart and discover how tall they are in nanometers.
Put math of measurement into lining up — and make waiting in line fun. Choose a size characteristic that learners can physically compare, such as foot length or hair length.
