Metric Ruler Freebie!

The weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas can be stressful and exhausting!  Here's hoping a little blog therapy is just what I need to take the edge off.  (Probably not, considering I should really be cleaning my house, decorating for the holiday, and writing out those Christmas cards!)

Enough about me.  My 6th graders are beginning a short unit on measuring physical properties, which is a fancy way to say we are studying length, mass, volume and density.  I noticed right from the start that these kiddos had NO CLUE how to read a metric ruler and knew that this would be a major road block to getting any kind of  decent lab results.  So, I created this freebie worksheet to ensure they had the basics.  It is very simple and straight forward, which is what I feel kids need when it comes to measurement!  I hope you can find some use for it in your classroom!  Happy Holidays.
A little early holiday gift from my classroom to yours!  


  1. This looks great. Thank you! Now I just need to get my office manager to order a set of rulers for my class. ;-)
