One of the best ways to improve your student’s measuring skills is to have them practice measuring more often. Instead of doing it when the chapter in your math book tells you to, you can do it all year long.
Print these posters in color, laminate them or put them in plastic sleeves. You can hang them around the room, use it for a game of Scoot, or put them in a center. You don’t have to put them all up at the same time, you can do it by month, by season, or one a day! Students will measure them using inches or centimeters.
There are separate recording sheets for inches and centimeters. I also separated them by seasons, if that’s the way you want to use them.
Differentiation: This set of posters can be used with any non-standard units of measure. On the recording sheet, a line is provided so the students can write the name of the unit they used. Possible non-standard units could be: paper clips, interlocking cubes, bears, beans, or many other items.
