Shoe Measurement - How big is your shoe?

          A few years ago I was a presenter for North Carolina Partnership for Improving Math and Science (NC PIMS).  I presented these SUPER cute shoe measurement activities.  I decided to try a few of them in my class this week since we are working on Measurement and Capacity.  I recreated 4 stations:

How many shoes tall are you?
Height in Shoes

Who has the Biggest Shoe?
Length of Your Shoe

What’s the Scoop of Your Shoe?
How many cubes will fit inside your shoe?
I think a lot of my students will be wearing boots this week! LOL :)

Are You the Heavy?
Weight in order from Greatest to Least

Computer – We played Poodle Weigh In!
Each day the students visit one center and they record the results!  By the end of the week they will get to visit each station one time!

I do something like this with my firsties later in the year and I also read How Big Is A Foot by Rolf Myller. Thanks for sharing.

I was inspired by your activities last week and created a recording sheet to go with them and used your shoes. I gave a little shout out to you in my blog today.
