Tips for Estimating Length Measures - Before you start teaching your students with measuring lengths of different objects, they should have varied practical experiments of the process of measuring. Given that there are things which are big and some are small, and some are too small to measure with a ruler. Kids should be able to measure objects at will before they go into different units of measurements. Once students are familiar with the art of measurement, they can follow the tips given below. Begin measuring with a standard unit to avoid confusion. After your students mastered ways of measurement, introduce different units of measurement. Learn the conversion of different units. For your students to truly learn the concept of measurement, they need to learn the conversion of units. Like, for instance, conversion from kg to gm or vice versa. The next step is for them to learn the estimation of length measures. They must be skilled enough to estimate the length or weight of any object by just looking at them. These worksheets and lessons will help students quickly gauge measurements of length.

Every number fits, but the units are what matters here.
- Homework 1 - Feet and meters are units that are used to measure bigger units of length.
- Homework 2 - All the measures differ only by the units used. So let's think of each measure.
- Homework 3 - Estimate the length (head to toe) of the lion.
Students should have an understanding of unit measures here. For example is a your shoe length closer to a meter or a foot.
