What is 4 Cubes Long? FREE Math Activity

Nonstandard measurement activity

Check out my students having a blast on a hunt. I challenged them to find things in the classroom that were the length of 4 connecting cubes. They were nuts about finding things! I told them if they found something that was 4 units long, I would take a picture of it. It felt like I was attacked! I heard “Ms. Tobin” every 1 second, but I loved it! Enjoy this free math activity!

Here is what we found using this Free Math Activity.

Students are roaming behind my desk and the whiteboard. I gave them the freedom to grab the stuff they ordinarily weren’t allowed to. Accordingly, it was a hot spot for this free math activity!
