This resource is designed to allow students to practice using the metric ruler to measure centimeters and millimeters. This fun activity will give them lots of practice both measuring and following directions.
Students will begin by collecting different colored cards that each tell a measurement of a "crazy creature." They are then challenged to convert those measurements from centimeters to millimeters or vice versa. Next, students must create parts (head, hair, eyes, ears, mouth, nose, arms and legs) for their creatures based on the measurements on each of the colored cards.
