Measure Half Inch Games & Activities makes measuring to the nearest half inch fun. This resource was created to give you several options to choose from to keep your students engaged while learning to measure. The activities include: print task cards, digital task cards, game board, and sorting. Pick and choose the activities that best meet the needs of each class.
Warning! Not all the objects on the task cards are lined up with the edge of the ruler. This proves to be a challenge for some students. The students who figure out how to measure in these situations truly understand measurement. Read how I help my students with this challenge in this blog post.

Feedback from Buyers
This will be a fun game for stations to review measuring to the half inch. I really like how some of the objects are not lined up at the end of ruler and the students have to actually count the inches. – Rebecca F.
I love the cards that don’t have the object lined up….a challenge for my high kids! – Katie C.
I like that the objects being measured do not all start at zero. This presents a challenge for students to observe before answering. – Karen S.
