PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This resource helps the students practice finding a reasonable estimate of measurement for real world objects. How much does a pig weigh? How long is a semi-truck? How much water does a bathtub hold?

There are six different card games in this packet. Each game can be played the same way. There are a total of 24 cards for each game (12 picture cards and 12 measurement cards). This is best played in a group of 3-4 students. This game is played like Go Fish. Mix up the cards and pass out an equal amount to each player. The youngest player goes first. If Player 1 is holding a card with a horse, he can pick another player and ask him, “Do you have the mass of a horse?” (Conversely, if Player 1 has a card that says 1 centimeter, he can pick a player and ask him, “Do you have something that is 1 centimeter long?”) Player 2 will look at his cards and see if he has a measurement card that is a reasonable estimate for the mass of a horse.

Play continues until all the players have found matches for their cards. A match consists of a picture with a reasonable estimate of measurement. There are some cards that might have more than one reasonable estimate, but the majority should only have one match.

Included are: metric mass/weight, customary mass/weight, metric volume/capacity, customary volume/capacity, metric length and customary length


A great way to review for standardized tests and check for student understanding of measurement benchmarks.
