My students loved these activities to help reinforce their understanding of non-standard measurement.
This is an extremely helpful resource and is full of extremely engaging activities to assist in the learning of the students.


This unit focuses on length, area, and weight using non-standard measurement units. It was created with the K-1 learner in mind.

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Describe measurable attributes of objects, such as length or weight. Describe several measurable attributes of a single object.
Directly compare two objects with a measurable attribute in common, to see which object has “more of”/“less of” the attribute, and describe the difference. For example, directly compare the heights of two children and describe one child as taller/shorter.
Order three objects by length; compare the lengths of two objects indirectly by using a third object.
Express the length of an object as a whole number of length units, by laying multiple copies of a shorter object (the length unit) end to end; understand that the length measurement of an object is the number of same-size length units that span it with no gaps or overlaps.
