Measuring is a big deal in third grade. Inches, centimeters, millimeters, conversions within measurement… we’re always using those pesky rulers and meter sticks!
So… I wanted to share this cute little center with you. As a bonus, it also has a monster theme that matches our classroom. Fun! Just like the Estimating Throughout the Year post from a couple weeks ago, I can’t take credit for this fun little center. This one is Karla’s from Life in Special Education.
There are 180 monsters to measure in the packet so you can use the set that works with your standards/current lesson. Even though I initially used them for measuring with inches to the nearest quarter inch, I’ve been able to reuse them now that I’ve introduced millimeters. Love that!
Several of my centers are just for independent practice, but I do like to grade one or two activities in each rotation. I’ve tried assessing participation and mastery several ways, but ultimately decided that having student turn in an answer sheet was the best way to go so I whipped up the recording sheet you see in the pictures.
If you want to win a FREE copy of this monster measuring pack, leave a comment below with your favorite measuring activity that you do with your class (it can be an idea, freebie, or even a link to a product). I’ll use random.org to pull a winner Friday. For an up-close preview of other fun teaching products, you can check out the links below.
