Launch Measure That Foot

Rulers aren’t the only tools that can be used to figure out how long, wide, deep, or high something is! To help kids build their understanding of measurement, measure these furry monster feet together. Then use blocks or crayons to measure each other’s feet and compare the lengths. Try measuring more things around you, such as the height of a table or one edge of a book.

To build kids’ math vocabulary as you play, you can use words and phrases such as:

  • let’s measure how tall, how wide, how long
  • which is taller, wider, longer?
  • height
  • width
  • few/fewer/fewest
  • more/most
  • guess
  • let’s check
  • estimate
  • longer than
  • shorter than
