Measuring our foot steps..

Today we started our measurement challenge sponsored by " Be Healthy, Be active." 

Can we walk the entire length of NZ in a day? 

This activity is designed for year 5/6 students.  However in our small groups we are challenging ourselves and learning  so much along the way.  

Here we are measuring our foot step with a piece of string.

Is this the best and most accurate measurement?? 

We tried again.. 

After we found out the length we went around measuring various objects. 

Here we decided everyone's foot step is a different size. We all had different measurements. 

We noticed it's not always the tallest person with the biggest foot step. 

We discussed which foot steps were the biggest and smallest.  Using ordinal numbers (1st, 2nd....) we could order the steps. 

We are looking forward to our next step!
