Measuring Snakes

£49.99 + VAT

New Way to Teach Measurement!

These tactile, colourful snakes are the perfect way to introduce young children to the key ideas of measurement. Children will enjoy using the snakes for and endless variety of estimating and measuring activities – comparing the sizes of the snakes, placing them in order from the shortest to the longest, finding objects that are shorter or longer and of course, measuring distances!

Measuring with the different lengths of snakes will encourage discussion (including talking about the concept of scaling), develop important mathematical vocabulary and help children understand the need for a fixed standard measuring unit. 

Each set includes ten snakes which are colour coded into five different lengths – (5 x 20cm, 2 x 40cm, 1 x 60cm, 1 x 80cm and 1 x 100cm) and an activity leaflet.
