One of the first lessons I taught in the classroom was Non-Standard Measurement and it has got to be one of my favorite things to teach!! With Halloween just around the corner, we thought it was time to bring non-standard measurement and candy into our math learning!! So, grab some candy corn. Turn on some spooky fun Halloween music. And print out our Halloween Themed Non-Standard Measurement for a haunted math class of learning and play!!
If you’re wondering exactly what Non-Standard Measurement is, it’s a super simple concept to not only understand but also teach. Non-standard measurement means using an everyday object to measure something in units.
This everyday object could be your hand or foot. Or, it could be candy, paper clips, erasers, or pencils of the same size. With non-standard measurement, you can use any item as long as it is of even and equal size when you go to measure.
For this Halloween Themed Non-Standard Measurement activity, you can grab some candy corn, print off these cute measurement sheets.
Then all you have to do is teach your students how to measure the candy so they are all faced the same way and are touching properly!!
We promise that this activity truly will be such a hit in your classroom and can’t wait for you to try it out.
