Big Top Measurement has 4 activities to help your students better understand measurement with nonstandard units. All activities are designed to be used whole group, small group, as remediation, instruction, practice or as an assessment.
Included in this purchase:
1. Nonstandard Measurement Cards-
Just print, laminate, cut out and your students can measure. You need a recording sheet for each student as well as units to measure with. I’ve included tickets that can be cut individually or into groups of 2, 3, 4, etc. I would recommend using 1 inch tiles or cubes. The cards and answer sheet are based off of inches.
2. Which is Longer?
Students will compare the lengths of 2 objects per card, paying attention to how many tiles long each object is.
3. Ordering Objects
Students will order 3 objects based on length or height.
4. Agree or Disagree?
Students will agree or disagree with the questions based on how the units of measurement have been used. Students should focus on if the same unit is used, if it straight with no gaps or overlapping units.
