Are you looking for super fun measurement worksheets and activities for kindergarten??
You found them!!
Measurement is such a fun concept to teach, because it’s something that children see everywhere around them. Helping them recognize and quantify the differences in size, weight and other measurable attributes really is giving them words to express things they’ve already noticed but maybe didn’t understand.
My kids love to measure things. They are fascinated by how tall they are, how much they weigh, and who is bigger. These are all great math concepts, and in these measurement worksheets and activities the children will get to explore various kinds of measurement and data gathering.
With no further ado, let me introduce you to these awesome activities.
Roll & Graph Cubes and Cards Game
This activity is low prep and fun. All you need are some Uno cards, snap cubes and a dice.
Sweet Treats – Measure It
Kindergartners get to practice non-standard measurement, meaning that they get to measure with things other than rulers. For this activity they get to practice measuring sweet treats with a variety of block sizes, or you could measure with paperclips and other classroom supplies.
Sort by Size Cake and Candles
Playdough lovers with adore this activity. Cut straws to make the “candles”, and let the children sort them by length.
Build and Measure Block Towers
You can use any blocks you have for this activity, but we love to use Legos. My kiddos love to build Lego towers, and measuring them just made it more fun.
How Many Fish Long?
Here is another example of non-standard measurement, and it involves a delicious snack. you can use toy fish as well if you would rather not have crackers.
Where Animals Live Venn Diagram
Venn diagrams are a fantastic way for children to analyze and sort data. For this one we used animal counters from the cupboard, but you can also use sets from the dollar store or any others that you have.
Planting by Size Flowers Activity
I’m not sure if the kids had more fun making the flowers or planting them in the playdough. Either way, it was great sorting by size practice.
Class Poll & Graph Block Towers
There are 4 different classroom polls in this set. Give each of the children a block and then let them take turns voting for their favorites. Watch the graph change as the towers grow. So fun!!
Blow & Measure Pom Pom Game
You are looking at what may be our favorite activity of the set!! The kids LOVED blowing their pom poms and trying to hit the center. Measuring the distance from the center was great practice as well.
Draw It: Taller or Shorter
Add a little bit of art to your measurement work. My kiddos always love using dry erase markers, and this is the perfect opportunity.
Non-Standard Rulers Measurement
Here is some more non-standard measurement practice for your students. We love these accordion fold style rulers, because the are whimsical and fun. Children will need help folding and cutting these out.
Weight Station Cards
Have you ever made a weigh station? This is a truly hands-on, exciting way to learn about measurement. Your biggest challenge may be trying to get them to stop. 🙂
Hands on activities are our favorite way to learn, but we often back that up with some extra practice. These no-prep, printable measurement worksheets are a simple solution for that. The black and white design makes them easy to print, and they are a fast add on to your lesson plan or homework packet.
