I'm in the process of sharing measurement activities I have developed for my classroom. To see all the posts for teaching measurement for upper elementary, click the tag for measurement at the bottom of the post.
Last week I shared Measuring in Inches. This week's one-page freebie could be used to teach estimation and careful measuring. You could also run the two pages back to back and have students compare results between metric and customary measurement.
