NOTE: This activity is included in my Back to School Math Work Stations Unit.
Students will estimate and record how many apples long they believe the object is. Then using the rulers, measure and record the actual measurement.
I have included 2 different apple sized rulers (non-standard) so you can choose the appropriate level for your class. There are also black and white rulers to copy for students to color and keep.
There are both color (to laminate and use dry erase markers) and black and white (to photo copy) recording sheets.
For a challenge encourage students to use their rulers and measure objects around the classroom or use a standard ruler to estimate and measure.
