New Year Hat | Measuring Craft | Nonstandard Unit of Measurement Activity | Kindergarten
Celebrate the New Year with math tied right into the fun! As you explore measurement, students practice using stars as nonstandard units of measurement to measure a New Years hat, blower and noise maker. Measure during math centers or a whole-group lesson in preschool, kindergarten, or first grade. Students might verbally answer measurement questions; you might also compare the measurements during your activity. To challenge students, they write how many stars high/wide objects are on the included sheet.
To prepare, students might color and cut pieces for a fun fine motor and visual-spatial activity during morning work or center time. PLUS, you might use these pieces to make actual party hats! Staple strips of paper to the sides of the hats, wrap the strips around students’ heads, and staple to sizes! Glue the noisemakers and blowers to the strips for decorations. Note that a coloring option is included as well.
