Practice measuring using this activity. I use it for math centers.
Students will measure all 28 items in this activity. They will record the items length or width on their recording sheet. They need to write how long/wide the object was as well as if they had to measure it's width or it's length.
On the back, students will sort which items they measured the width for and which items they measured the length for.
For measuring I switch between measuring with cubes, buttons, paperclips, and sometimes inches.
