Mini Measuring Tape
A tool to blend Practical Life with Numeracy!
This Mini Measuring Tape fits snugly into the pocket of any eager explorer, ready to measure, compare and catalogue.
The external case of the measuring tape measures approximately 5cm in diameter.
The tape itself measures a total length of 150cm or 60 inches. The tape shows both of these units of measurement, with one on each side.
The Mini Measuring Tape can inspire completely spontaneous exploration - with a child simply follow his or her own curiosity - or can form a part of a guided lesson. Extensions can include encouraging children to make records of their measurements, either by drawing a diagram with the numerical measurement beside it or by writing charts that compare various measured objects.
