Here is an activity that is great to use for students to practice their length measuring skills. Send them on a classroom Measuring Scavenger Hunt!
The activity can be done as independent practice, in pairs, or even groups… however you choose to manage it.
The free download is asks 10 questions. You can select either nonstandard units of craft sticks or standard units of inches and feet.
Be sure at the end of the hunt to share all the answers to show students that there can be multiple correct responses. What can you find that is 10 inches long?
Students will get lots of measuring practice and the discussion will amp up the value of this measuring activity even more.
