How many blocks?

Use your child's blocks as a math tool to teach measurement.

Learning Stages

In the city, people ask, "How many blocks away is that?" Ask your child the same question using stacking blocks. Use blocks as measuring manipulatives to determine how many blocks it takes to reach from the sofa to the toy box. Now try to measure the distance in blocks from the toy box to another piece of furniture. Which is closer? Which is farther away?
