Printable Bugs/Insects Math and Literacy Activities
Reminds me of my paper airplane competition my third year of teaching. Hands on measurement activity requiring students to fly paper airplanes and then measure the distance traveled! Students love it :)
These measuring weight activities are sure to keep your kindergarten and first graders engaged! My students were GLUED to this lesson! This activity helps students compare and order according to the weight of the objects.
Provide different nonstandard units of measurement for students to experiment with. Leave the measuring open-ended so that students can freely measure any object they feel are appropriate using the tool.
