The Thanksgiving Measurement Activity gives children practice using a ruler to measure objects in either inches or centimeters.
If you select the inches worksheets, children will measure objects in both whole inches (e.g., 3 in., 5 in.) and half inches (e.g., 2.5 in., 7.5 in.). If you select the centimeters worksheets, children will only measure in whole centimeters.
Once children have measured all the objects, they are asked to rank them in order from tallest to shortest, supporting the development of comparing skills.
