2016 2MS Potato Olympics

We have commenced our investigation into MEASUREMENT with the Potato Olympics.  Each coach created a Spudlete, which competed in three events.  Each event helped us to discover that when you measure you need to use a specific tool and each measurement has a name.  We measured weight in grams, on scales.  We measured distance (length) in centimetres, using a measuring tape.  We measured time in seconds, using a stopwatch.  We also had a lot of fun exploring and some laughs together…

Can you practice doing some measuring at home? Have you got some kitchen scales? Have you got a watch? What other measuring tools can you find around your house?
