These illustrated task cards and center activities will supplement any math unit on measurement. They cover comparing attributes, non-standard measurement (and standard measurement, if you choose to use a ruler) and comparing weight, volume and size. Use this unit supplement to add some fun in your classroom.

In this product there are two task card activities, with cute clip art and coordinating worksheets. There are several ways to use the task cards and differentiate. This pack is the perfect addition to your math center activities, and will work for individual and partner play. For Pre-K, Kindergarten, 1st grade and homeschoolers.

Measure Mania! is the first activity. You can look at attributes of measurement, and discuss different descriptive words that can be used. You can actually do some standard and non-standard measurements too, if you choose to (1st grade task). There are 16 task cards - four different sets, with different styles. Choose one that best matches the way you'd like to incorporate them into your lesson plans.

Another way to use the task cards is to have the students compare two different animals or insects and explain the attributes that they see. There are two worksheets for this activity and a recording sheet for measuring.

Compare! is the second activity. It requires the students to compare two objects and determine how they are different. These task cards focus on weight, volume and size. There are two worksheets for this activity.

Answer keys included.

These activities align with the CCSS.
