Comparing Measurements

Students use a ruler or meter stick to practice their metric unit and estimation skills by measuring everyday objects. First, students estimate the measurements of five distances as larger or smaller than a meter. Students then measure each item and record the actual measurement, and repeat the exercise in centimenters. This activity could be a good in-class project, or a homework project with parent assistance.
