## Informal Units of Measurement Activities You’ll Treasure!

Are you searching for new and engaging resources to help you introduce your little learners to informal measurement concepts? If so, we’ve got one that you’re sure to ‘treasure’ for years to come!

This engaging activity is designed to get your students up, moving, and measuring using informal units of measurement through a scavenger hunt-style activity. With this resource, your students are tasked with searching the classroom, playground, or other learning space for objects that match the lengths shown.

Students will use various hands-on manipulatives as informal units of measurement, such as

• Paper clips
• Dice
• Blocks
• Pencils
• Binder clips
• Counters
• Glue sticks
• Markers

Teacher Tip! We recommend gathering the measurement materials for individual students or small groups of students prior to your lesson. Simply gather up the number of objects needed on each sheet and place them in a zipper bag. When ready, hand out your worksheets and student material baggies and you’re ready to go!

This resource is available as an easy-to-use Google Slides or Printable PDF Resource file. To get your copy, click the dropdown arrow on the download button to select the file format you prefer. Make your copies, prep your measuring tools, and you’re ready to begin!
