Exploring measuring tools in preschool

We have been exploring the use of measuring and cooking tools in our prek class. The children loved using the measuring tools to scoop up dried beans…

Beans have a wonderful quality to them. They feel smooth to the touch which invites hands on exploration…

As the children explored the beans, we were able to talk more about our measuring tools which included measuring cups, measuring spoons, and measuring scales…

Later in the day, we played a short measuring tool sorting game. We sorted our measuring tools by size and used terms like 1/2 cup and 1/3 cup and 1/4 cup…

Then we dumped them all into the water table for a little more measuring cup play…

It was quite the day for exploring our measuring tools!
