Help your students Measure Up! to the common core measurement standards by teaching them how to use a ruler and measure through an interactive and fun experience. This HUGE ruler boldly displays both inches and centimeters. Unlike most rulers, the standard and metric measurement lines are “lined up” so that the students can easily convert inches and cm (and vise versa ) in their early stages of the learning process.
To get your students really involved, have them use one of six adorable Measurement Buddies to indicate where the measurement starts and stops. This is a hands on interactive method for the introduction to rulers, measurement, inches and centimeters.
** BONUS ** A Craftivity booklet is included to give your students extra practice in understanding inches, feet, and yards. This booklet features a cover page in subway art style which highlights the reasons that measurement is important. Choose from 3 different formats featuring the Measurement Buddies, and one with a bit of a retro theme. On each of the pages your students will create a life size representation of an inch, a foot and a yard. Students will also brainstorm about things that are about an inch, a foot, or a yard long. They will record their findings on each page. This is a print and go activity which offers a hands on opportunity to learn all about measurement and rulers. Inches, feet, and yards are included in this measurement activity.
