Measurement Masters

Today, to kick off our measuring topic, we decided to challenge some volunteers to follow a recipe using only their hands.

We were trying to make play dough, but it turned into a rather soupy mess. So we thought about what might help! So we got out the measuring tools. We learnt about what types of tools can measure different things (like wet and dry measuring cups, rulers for length, width, and height, etc), then we gave it a go.
