1-2-3 Come Measure Up With Me!
Since the apple and pumpkin measurement booklets were such a huge success, I decided to follow them up with some quick table-top, measuring worksheets. You can do them separately for your math or science block, or run them off and staple them into a booklet.
I've provided worksheets for little ones who are learning how to measure with blocks, and others, for kiddo's ready to work with inches on a yardstick, and pounds on a numbered scale.
Choose which ones you want to use for your apple studies, and then follow them up later, with pumpkins in October.
It would be a good idea to start these activities with a brain storming session. To review, ask students to define what height and weight is, how they can measure it, and why they think measuring things is important.
So that students are assisted with spelling, make a guess-timation list of items they think will be greater than, less than or equal to the heights and weights of an apple or pumpkin, and write them on the board.
The last page provides an opportunity to practice greater than, less than, and equal too. Children can add a bit of pizzazz to their work with crayons or markers.
