A set of 24 match-up cards to reinforce a range of measurement concepts.
Use this hands-on teaching resource to review your students’ understanding of length, mass, capacity, temperature, volume, and area.It would make a perfect addition to your collection of math and science 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 = 1 cm
- the capacity of a mug = 8 fl oz
- the mass of child = 45 lbs
- the temperature of a refrigerator = 36 degrees Fahrenheit
- the area of a smartphone screen = 100 square centimeters
- the volume of a bar of soap = 12 cubic inches
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.

Know relative sizes of measurement units within one system of units including km, m, cm; kg, g; lb, oz.; l, ml; hr, min, sec. Within a single system of measurement, express measurements in a larger unit in terms of a smaller unit. Record measurement ...
Convert among different-sized standard measurement units within a given measurement system (e.g., convert 5 cm to 0.05 m), and use these conversions in solving multi-step, real world problems.
Measure volumes by counting unit cubes, using cubic cm, cubic in, cubic ft, and improvised units.
