This is a center activity to compliment a unit on measurement. Students work with a partner to measure items of their choice around the classroom.


- Students get hands-on measuring practice with accountability

- You dictate the unit or units of measurement students can use

- You dictate where in the room students can measure (I assigned students a specific wall each day to keep things different and keep students away from the teaching area)

- One sheet asks for an estimation and one does not, so you can choose the one best suited to your students' level

- Easy prep station - just print copies and give students a measuring tool!

For a fun extension, grab a copy of this worksheet and take students to a new location in the building or outside - my students loved measuring around the playground when we talked about yards!
