This is a baker's dozen of task cards that you can put out for your students to measure different parts of their bodies (circumference of head, height, waist size, foot size, leg length, etc.) using Learning Links. If you have them around, you've probably wondered what to do with them.
If you've never used Learning Links (they go by a variety of names), you can pick up a 500 link kit for about $15 from Pricefalls.com

You're students should work in pairs to measure one another, that way you can be sure they measured correctly, as well as counted correctly, as well as wrote the number correctly. It's a nice activity that your (ahem) "kiddos" can do with a minimum of supervision.
Print, laminate and trim: you'll have them for dozens of years and probably give them to whomever replaces you when you retire in 2034.
