A set of 18 match-up cards to reinforce measurement concepts of length, mass and capacity.

Use this hands-on teaching resource to consolidate your students’ understanding of length, mass and capacity. It would make a perfect addition to your collection of numeracy games!

Make me a match!

This match-up game contains two different types of cards: picture cards and measurement cards. The picture cards must be matched to the exact measurement in order to make a pair. For example:

• the length of blank ant = 5 mm
• the capacity of a mug = 250 mL
• the mass of child = 20 kg.

One resource, multiple possibilities…

This versatile resource can be used for a range of whole class, group/pair or individual activities.

• Whole class – provide each student with a card, then have the students find their ‘measurement match’. For an extra challenge, make the activity a race, or ask the students to complete the task in silence!
• Groups or pairs – allow the students to use the cards to play a variety of card games, such as ‘Memory’, ‘Snap’ and ‘Go Fish’.
• Individual – allow the students to work individually to match the picture cards with the measurement cards.

Need something harder?
