Length in cm Worksheet

Worksheet Description

This worksheet presents a straightforward measurement activity for students. The task involves eight horizontal bars, each with a different length, placed over a metric ruler that measures in centimeters. Students are required to measure the length of each colored bar using the ruler and write their findings in the blank spaces provided to the right of each bar. The goal is to teach students how to read measurements on a tape measure and record these measurements accurately.

The worksheet is designed to teach students the skill of measuring lengths using a metric ruler, specifically in centimeters. It emphasizes the ability to read a ruler, which includes identifying the start and end points of an object, and understanding the metric units of measurement. This exercise enhances the student’s precision in reading the scale of the ruler and translating visual lengths into numerical values. Furthermore, it reinforces the concept of metric measurement, which is an essential part of math education and practical life skills.
