• ### Activity 2 / Compare Length in Centimeters Worksheet

Your child must have a good idea of how to accurately measure things, and some adding and subtracting skills to successfully complete this worksheet. The task is to figure out the difference in length between two objects. To do this, your child must first measure both items and then, subtract the length of the shorter object from the length of the longer one.

• ### Activity 3 / Compare Length in Inches and Centimeters Worksheet

In this colorful worksheet, your child will be measuring not only in inches, but in centimeters as well. In the first task, your child must first measure both objects in centimeters, and then subtract the shorter object from the longer object to find their difference in centimeters. Then, the second task requires the same thing, except that now your child must measure in inches.

• ### Activity 4 / Length Comparison Quest Worksheet

Knowing the measuring tools and how to use them is not the end of your child’s education on measurement. To be well-rounded in the subject, your child must also be able to accurately compare different objects and their lengths. In the length comparison quest worksheet, your child will check the correct length of the traffic light in the picture, and then check the length of the other objects, marking the ones that measure at 4 feet shorter than the traffic light.
