Measurements with Isai Ambalam Children

The 5th and 6th grade children were formed into 2 groups of of 4(2 boys and 2 girls in each) and a group of 3(2 boys and a girl). Each group measured something different

  1. Area of STEMland                       – 170200  cm2
  2. Area of a Window                      – 10000 cm2
  3. Perimeter of a hexagon table  – 408 cm

Some groups had difficulty and were confused with the standards on the tapes. ie, inches, cm, metre and feet. They managed to measure everything in cms at the end with the help of each other. I thought they they got some idea on how to measure. Naveen and I were able to notice that they have difficulty in converting cm to m.
