Adding Machine Tape - 2 Math Activities and Art!

As a way to review measurement, we had each child partner up and help cut their height with a piece of adding machine tape. Although it wasn't a completely accurate measurement, it was close enough.

Next, each child put their name on their tape and got to color it.

Finally, we took our tapes outside and hung them up. Then as a class whole we decided how to place them in descending order (from tallest/longest to shortest.) I used clothespins with alphabetical letters to keep the tapes straight and make it easier to determine length. That turned out to be a boon, because we could then differentiate tapes by letter names.
