• ### Activity 1 / Measure It Twice: Feet and Yards Worksheet

How many feet makes 1 yard? The worksheet will teach your child that 3 feet makes 1 yard. At the top of the car is a metric ruler in feet, and en equal length at the bottom shows the length in yards. Now, your child must look at the picture and complete the sentences about the car to be correct. For example, how many yards long is the car? Is a foot a smaller or bigger unit of measurement according the picture?

• ### Activity 2 / Measure it in Feet Worksheet

In this worksheet, your children must put their measuring skills to the test. How well can your youngsters accurately measure objects around the house? If you are unsure of the answer to that, this printout will definitely serve as an appropriate evaluation tool. In the exercise, your kids will measure various garden objects in feet, and check the correct measurements from the options provided on the left.

• ### Activity 3 / Toy House Measurements Worksheet

In this worksheet, your kids will need more than a basic knowledge of math, and some pretty good measuring skills. When you measure an object from a starting point on the measuring tool other than zero, you must minus the start point from the end point to get the accurate length. In this tracing sheet, your children should follow the dotted lines to find the correct length for each part of the house.

• ### Activity 4 / Measuring in Inches Worksheet

This is another math worksheet to be used for getting more practice in measuring.
Look at the picture carefully. Can you say how long the UFO is? Write down the number in the space provided. Do you see the monsters? Can you measure them and write how tall each monster is? Which monster is tallest? Circle the tallest monster.
