He noticed that his sticks were different lengths and put them in order.

See if you can find some sticks and put them in order.

Talk about your sticks:

Say how many you have found.

Choose two sticks and say “This one is longer than this one”.  “This one is shorter than this one”.

Choose more than two sticks and say which is the shortest and which is the longest.

Make a set of sticks that are all the same length.

Choose one stick and look for other objects that are longer than it, shorter than it and the same length as it.

Make some pictures using your sticks. Have a look at this idea on www.creativestarlearning.co.uk
