A worksheet to use when exploring informal units of length.
Students use the dinosaur footprints provided in the resource to measure the length of various objects around the classroom.
The students then compare their measurements with peers who used different sized footprints.
An additional blank recording sheet has also been included to allow students to measure more objects or spaces of their own choice.
