If you do a unit study on polar bears, penguins, or the polar regions, this is a fun addition to the math center or an activity that you can do while learning about these animals and areas.
Grab these little printables and use Unifix cubes or other materials to measure the different animals and compare their heights.
This is an activity you can use to illustrate that you can measure with different things, as long as you use the same material to measure different things. What other things can you use to measure them?
Get the printables and more information on how to use them at No Time for Flash Cards.
