My students need constant practice with measurement to understand conceptually the lessons in our adopted curriculum. Here is a simple one-page activity that could be used in a variety of ways: whole group, partner work, math station, or homework.
I have students estimate the length of various items in the classroom and they measure the items in inches.
I am a third generation public school teacher who has been in education since 1987. I have taught elementary students full time for 20+ years. I am also a freelance curriculum writer. You can contact me at mrs.mjbauer(at)gmail(dot)com.
