Students will showcase their estimation skills before using linking cubes to record the actual measurement of items around the room. Students will use linking cubes to measure everything from their arm to their desktop.
One worksheet has the items column filled in with body parts and items from around the room. The students have to estimate the length of the item and then record the actual measurement. On the second worksheet students will have the opportunity to pick several items from around the room to estimate their length and record their actual measurement.
This activity is great for math centers or independent work.
