Message from Me Activity: Long Jump
Standard: 2.3.6 Measurement and Estimation
Use a tape measure or yardstick to measure how far each student can jump. Send a message showing the child's feet next to the tape measure and say how far the student can jump. Repeat the activity later in the year and compare jumping distance by reviewing the original message on the Message from Me website.
Family prompt - Ask parents or siblings to try the long jump at home. Let the child count the number of feet jumped.
