Today we are going to be discussing length and how long something is. Start by getting 3 items (e.g pens, pencils, toys) and lay them flat next to each other. Before you start working out which item is longest or shortest, you need to make sure they are all starting at the same point. Take a look below for an example of this.

Encourage using the language of shorter, longer, shortest and longest. Find 3 more items and have another go at ordering their length.
