Line Up! is a simple game that allows students to practice their measuring skills. It also reinforces skills like estimating, addition, and cooperation.
Students can measure with any units you choose: inches, centimeters, or even paperclips! Use this game in math centers, as a free time activity, a review game, or as a lesson activity.
I recommend laminating the game page or placing it in a page protector and providing two different colored dry-erase markers for students to write with.
This game directly reinforces the following standards:
CCSS.MC.1.MD.A.2 Express the length of an object as a whole number of length units, by laying multiple copies of a shorter object (the length unit) end to end; understand that the length measurement of an object is the number of same-size length units that span it with no gaps or overlaps.
CCSS.MC.2.MD.A.1 Measure the length of an object by selecting and using appropriate tools such as rulers, yardsticks, meter sticks, and measuring tapes.
CCSS.MC.2.MD.B.5 Use addition and subtraction within 100 to solve word problems involving lengths that are given in the same units.
CCSS.MC.3.MD.B.4 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.
