Maths - 11.6.2020: Comparing lengths at home, or in the garden, or anywhere really

On Tuesday, we compared the lengths of sticks in the forest school so why don't you compare the length of some of the objects around the house.

Language to use:

short, shorter & shortest

tall, taller and tallest

long, longer and longest

wide, wider and widest


Try to avoid using the term bigger as it is not a mathematical term in relation to length and width
