Today we measured our pencils using different objects. We used really good reasoning skills and could say why we would need less dominoes to measure the pencil than counters (i.e they are longer so you will need less and that if you used smaller objects, you would need more)
Good thinking, Mathemagicians!
We also estimated how many objects we would need and then tested our theories by measuring and comparing.
We measured using paper clips, cubes, dominoes and counters.
