This seasonal activity is a fun, engaging way for students to practice their measurement skills! Students choose from a set of 12 cards and measure a Thanksgiving themed picture. Their answer is then written on the recording sheet provided.

Try using various non-standard forms of measurement such as linking cubes, paper clips, mini erasers (#Targetdollarbin!), candy corn or beans! To differentiate, use standard measurement to challenge your students who are ready to use a ruler! Teaching money? Try measuring with coins and have your students write their measurement as a value!

Thanksgiving Measurement is perfect for small group instruction, for use as a math center/station, an early finisher activity, or even an assessment!

Know relative sizes of measurement units within one system of units including km, m, cm; kg, g; lb, oz.; l, ml; hr, min, sec. Within a single system of measurement, express measurements in a larger unit in terms of a smaller unit. Record measurement equivalents in a two-column table. For example, know that 1 ft is 12 times as long as 1 in. Express the length of a 4 ft snake as 48 in. Generate a conversion table for feet and inches listing the number pairs (1, 12), (2, 24), (3, 36),...
Generate measurement data by measuring lengths using rulers marked with halves and fourths of an inch. Show the data by making a line plot, where the horizontal scale is marked off in appropriate units-whole numbers, halves, or quarters.
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.
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.
