Looking for measuring activities for kindergarten math to supplement your curriculum resources? We’ve got you covered. In this post, I will share two of my favorite measuring math investigations that will make provide a hands-on learning experience that is fun, engaging, and purposeful!
Measuring Activities for Kindergarten Math
I created two mini-book resources that provide additional practice for measuring objects with cubes: Measuring School Supplies and Measuring Shoes.
Measuring School Supplies
This Measuring School Supplies Math Investigation is the perfect NO PREP supplement to your measuring unit in Kindergarten! The resource includes:
- A Lesson Plan with easy to follow directions – great for a sub!
- A How to Measure poster
- Boy and Girl measuring mini-books
Simply print, double-staple, and cut the booklets in half. Your students will love this hands-on math lesson that is perfect for Math Centers or Math Workshop! Students build cube towers and measure the supplies shown in the photo. I prep a basket for each table to share the supplies they need to measure. They can use items from their own pencil case or use what’s in the basket. You can let your students work individually, in pairs, or as a small group!
Measuring Our Shoes
This Measuring Our Shoes resource gets your kids up and moving around the room as they measure their friends’ shoes. This product includes:
- A lesson plan
- How-to posters
- A directions projectable
- Shoe measuring mini-books
- A BONUS class graph!
Students work cooperatively as they measure, count, and record the lengths of their classmates’ shoes using connecting cubes. My kindergarten students really enjoyed this activity. They loved writing and coloring in the mini-books, and they were excited to take them home at the end of Math Workshop. The graph was the perfect way to end the lesson by having the students analyze and compare the results.
If you have tried either of these activities, I would love to hear how it worked in your classroom!
