Is a giraffe more likely to be 15 feet tall or 25 inches tall? You probably don't need to get out your ruler to get to the correct answer. Assess student understanding of inches, centimeters, feet, and meters with this estimation check-in.
Get your students excited about measuring with this fun and colorful hands-on activity! Your students will see the difference between centimeters and inches as they use the included ruler to measure a fidget spinner, toy car, and other fun objects.
Once students have understood just how long a foot is, it’s time to dive deeper and explore what makes up a foot. Measuring inches takes more patience, but students will love learning the exact length of some of their favorite objects – be prepared to begin answering decimals and fractions questions, though, because once a student understands the concept of inches, they will want to know what’s even smaller.
