Do your students need more practice learning to make a line plot to display a data set of measurements in fractions of a unit? I know when I went over the Common Core Standards CCSS Math 4.MD.B.4 had me scratching my head. We had NO resources to cover it. So I made my own!

These two worksheets use contexts that fourth graders are likely to be familiar with when it comes to measurement units and fractional parts. The types of questions vary between reading a line plot, creating a line plot with given data, subtracting fractions with like denominators, and justifying their answers. Answer keys are included.

Update: Teachers Pay Teachers has included a digital overlay. This means you can upload it directly to your Google Classroom from this site. Students can type answers in the boxes provided. They can use the pen tool to draw “xs” on the line plot.

Generate measurement data by measuring lengths using rulers marked with halves and fourths of an inch. Show the data by making a line plot, where the horizontal scale is marked off in appropriate units-whole numbers, halves, or quarters.
Make a line plot to display a data set of measurements in fractions of a unit (1/2, 1/4, 1/8). Solve problems involving addition and subtraction of fractions by using information presented in line plots. For example, from a line plot find and interpret the difference in length between the longest and shortest specimens in an insect collection.
Make a line plot to display a data set of measurements in fractions of a unit (1/2, 1/4, 1/8). Use operations on fractions for this grade to solve problems involving information presented in line plots. For example, given different measurements of liquid in identical beakers, find the amount of liquid each beaker would contain if the total amount in all the beakers were redistributed equally.
