Estimating the length

by Amy Collins April 21, 2020

Source different objects from around the home and sort them into different categories. Estimate the length you think they may be, and categorise them accordingly.

  • Maths (KS2)
  • Free
  • Simple resources found in the home.

What to do:

  • Split an empty box/container into three sections
  • Choose the lengths you want to focus on
  • Can you find objects that would fit each different category?
  • Engage in discussion-based activity around the lengths of different objects and how they compare
  • Have fun estimating the different lengths 😊
