Measuring with a Scarf!

A fabulous winter activity as it starts to get cold.... burrr! From my "Great Ideas" page!

One of my favourite activities to do heading into winter is to get children to bring in a scarf from home. We talk about expansion (when we stretch our scarfs), line them up next to each other from biggest to smallest, join them together to measure huge distances, measure and compare using measuring tapes, work out the area and perimeter, guess and check how many times we can wrap it around a tree etc. etc.. Who knew you could do so much measuring with a scarf?
