Kindergarten Measuring Worksheets

You will find that when it comes to the skill of measuring and using measurement tools there will be a widespread unpredictable ability across your classes. It boils down to how much experience that they have with it. I had a youngster that struggled in all aspects of math, but when it came to measuring and using fractions, he was a wiz. I later found out that he was the son of a family that owned and operated a bakery. This skill is all about basic logic and gaining experience. These worksheets and lessons help students learn to measure the common attributes of objects using various forms of units.

Common Units of Length and Weight

Scale (Black and White)

There are a lot of quantities around us that we can measure, such as time, length, weight, and volume. However, there are units of measure that we need to use with these quantities to help them make sense. For example, if someone asks you how about your height and you tell them it is 167. How will they interpret what unit to use with 167? When we add units of measure, this makes more sense. 167 feet tall, is the size of a building. 167 inches is still much larger than the tallest person to ever live. 167 centimeters, that the height of a person.

Yes, they can use their common sense, but the world does not work that way. When you are telling someone about the length, weight, or any other quantity, using the right units is crucial. When it comes to units, there are two-unit systems that the world is using today; the U.S measurement system and the metric system.

Talking about length, it is a measurement of an object which tells how long its side is. The units of measurement for length in the imperial system includes inches (in), feet (ft), yards (yd), and miles (mi). The units of measurement of length in the metric system are millimeter (mm), centimeter (cm), meter (m), and kilometer (km).

Weight is the measurement of how heavy an object is. The units of measurement of weight in the imperial system are pound (lb.) and ounce (oz). The units of measurement of weight in the metric system include grams (g) and kilograms (kg).
