Valentine's Day Mailbox | Measuring Craft | Nonstandard Unit of Measurement
Celebrate Valentine’s Day with math tied right into the fun! As you explore measurement, students practice using hearts as nonstandard units of measurement to measure a mailbox with a Valentine’s Day card tucked inside. 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 hearts 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. Note that a coloring option is included as well.
