Grade 6 Measurement Activities

We offer 45 outstanding measurement activities that provide teachers with the fundamentals that are essential for good instruction.

Measurement answers questions such as how much, how long, or how far. Measurement can also describe the amount of milk in a carton, the time elapsed from one time period to another, or the distance between a students’ homes and school. Sometimes measurement topics can be overwhelming for sixth graders. We have made learning these topics easy for students and stress-free for teachers. There are numerous group and whole class activities that help students determine the appropriate units of measurement to use for a given situation.

?Can your students differentiate between units in the metric and
Customary System of measurement?

The very first activity allows students to categorize metric and customary units of measurement.
Students become adept at using basic measuring tools such as rulers and protractors. Formal practice is offered on converting from larger to smaller units of measurement and vice versa as well as appropriate practice with formulas for sixth grade students.

Our measurement activities will enable students to—
?Estimate measurements (including circumference) and evaluate
reasonableness of results.

?Select and use appropriate units, tools, or formulas to measure
and to solve problems involving length (including perimeter),
area, time, temperature, volume, and weight.

?Measure angles.

?Convert measures within the same measurement system
(customary and metric) based on relationships between units.

The activities can be used to Assess concepts, Introduce concepts, Review concepts, and to help students Retain the concepts that have been taught. Our Math Activities can be used in a variety of ways to “AIRR” out your math curriculum.
Section One contains a numbered list of activities. Each activity is explained using a step-by-step process identifying the group size and materials needed to complete the task. Some of the activities have matching activity cards and practice sheets which are found in Section Two, Activity Sheets. The top right side of each set of activity cards, and practice sheet corresponds with the matching activity number. An answer key is conveniently provided in Section Three.
