D6 Measures Up

As our students have been studying measurement by using cubes as a unit of measure.  The children began with measuring a pencil, a wooden block and other small objects. As they continued measuring objects, they began a quest to use up all the cubes they had.  By measuring the width of the classroom, they made stacks of ten cubes adding them to make 100. In order to do this, they made stacks of 10 x 10 totaling 400 cubes. They started placing them on the classroom floor, beginning at the door and keeping it as straight as possible. The finished total of used cubes was 431 cubes from start to finish. They were so amazed that they could begin counting using 10’s and get to such a large number and measuring such a large object.
