We continued learning about measuring by measuring some flowers with a non-standard unit- ladybugs. We had ladybug rulers with small ladybugs and large ladybugs. We talked about if it took more big ladybugs or more little ladybugs to measure the same flower. We were right! It took more little ladybugs!

After we measured the flowers, we got excited about measuring items around the room with our ladybugs.

We went on a search to find objects that were exactly 10 little ladybugs. It was hard to find. We came close many times but...

Ruthy did it! She found a book that was exactly 10 little ladybugs long!

We also had fun using our yard stick from the day before to measure things around the room.
