One Metre Line


Posted by lisar | Posted in Length, Measurement | Posted on September 30, 2014

Using a ruler and an A4 sheet of paper, students are required to create a line that is one metre long in total. The 1 metre line can be made up to several straight lines that join. Students record the length of each separate line and need to add as they go.

This activity can be extended by adding requirements such as:

* Each line must be a different length

* The beginning and end need to join

* Each line must contain a decimal amount eg 3.6 cm
