Unicorn Sorting

Measurement concepts are often a part of children’s interactions. “My dad is bigger,” “I can jump higher,” and “I have more play dough than you!” are common comparisons that children make.

From the child’s perspective, these statements compare quantity; however, they also provide a nice introduction to measurement.

Unfortunately, it is an often neglected content standard in early childhood classrooms.

Throughout the many projects we do throughout the week, we are constantly measuring, comparing, and contrasting items related to the theme.

For this activity, your little one was presented with a problem. They were each given three pictures of unicorns that were of varying length.

After this, they were asked to sort them by size. The target words for this activity were long, longer, and longest.

Following this, they were encouraged to measure the width of the largest unicorn. Lastly, we recorded the answers and compared our results!
