This is taken from our range of colourful resources for our members which looks at all aspects of shape and measurement for young children. At this age, measurement is about comparisons between things and standard units of measurement such as centimetres are not introduced until much later. So we begin with simple comparisons of size, using the term ‘bigger’. On these pages your child will be asked to compare two items and say which is bigger. Obviously there is a lot that can be done with this around the house and when out on trips.
If there are three objects or more the question should be, ‘Which is the biggest?’
