These measuring ideas, however, could be used for measuring during this month, no matter WHAT you call it!
My measurement unit normally doesn't fall during the holidays, but this year it did, which has been a BLAST! We've measured with holiday flavored M&M's, candy canes, gingerbread men...you name it!
My camera wasn't with me when we did our candy cane measuring yesterday, but it was so much fun! I brought in mini and regular sized candy canes and had students first estimate the lengths of objects, then measure them with their mini and regular candy canes. YUMMY non-standard units are so fun!!!
I made this FREEBIE to go along with this candy cane measuring center! Feel free to grab it and if you like it, please leave me some feedback! CLICK here to download this free math center!
Thanks for stopping by!!! HAPPY HOLIDAYS! :)
