Here are 16 fun measurement cards to use with your students. Each card requires students to make an estimate before measuring. Students will need a ruler to complete these cards. A yardstick and tape measure would also be helpful. Students can work in standard and/or metric measurements. A student answer sheet is included.
In addition, there are three "Now try this:" cards. Card 1 asks students to use two different units of measurement for the same object and explain the results (you may need to guide students toward larger objects). Card 2 asks students to compare measurements of two objects and find the difference. Card 3 is a graphing activity for advanced learners who will enjoy an the extra challenge.
