Revised October 2012 to include Common Core Standards and new "Try it Now" cards.

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.

These cards will look best in color, but will also print out fine in grayscale. Simply print and cut along the guidelines. Laminate and use them again and again. Alternatively, you could print on cardstock. It works well to keep them in a baggie. Another option is to hole-punch a corner of each card and put them all on a ring.

This product addresses the following Common Core Standards:

• CCSS.Math.Content.2.MD.A.1 Measure the length of an object by selecting and using appropriate tools such as rulers, yardsticks, meter sticks, and measuring tapes. (task cards)

• CCSS.Math.Content.2.MD.A.2 Measure the length of an object twice, using length units of different lengths for the two measurements; describe how the two measurements relate to the size of the unit chosen. (Now try this Card 1)

• CCSS.Math.Content.2.MD.A.3 Estimate lengths using units of inches, feet, centimeters, and meters. (task cards)

• CCSS.Math.Content.2.MD.A.4 Measure to determine how much longer one object is than another, expressing the length difference in terms of a standard length unit. (Now try this Cards 2)

Just one small problem-- the cards all say "Measure It!" but the cover card says "Measurement It!" I took off the cover card because I didn't want to confuse my kids with it having a different name- also a name that doesn't make sense. Just thought you might want to fix this!

I teach first grade-same topic but using only "non-standard" measurement. I was thinking I could use these for that as well but instead of a ruler, have them use cubes instead. I love the idea of using task cards for math and literacy centers but I don't see them for first grade...do you know of anyone doing these for first? Thanks so much!

I'm not sure if she has exactly what you need, but I would look at what Sunny Days has in her store. She makes task cards for a younger crowd.
