Measuring with Marshmallows!

Happy Friday!!!

Is it raining by you?  We have a beautiful hue of green blanketing our village and everything is in bloom!  Did I mention that the birds are thrilled by all of this?

Yesterday we used big and mini marshmallows to measure lines!  At first they were a little tricky to line up end to end with no gaps or space, but eventually we learned a few strategies to get them to stay on the line like proper ducklings.  We pondered:  how many would it take?  How many fewer big than small?  Next, we also used our rulers and measured the lines.  Of course, the final question, "When can we eat them?"

Here is the link to the activity I used!  THANKS, Kelli!!! Marshmallow-Measurement

Very cool! Did you correlate them at all the inches or centimeters? Or do their sizes not really math up to that? I'm in the middle of a measurement unit now.
