New Inch Measurement Worksheets

A new series of worksheets for working with inch measurements on a ruler have been posted at the link below…

Inch Measurement Worksheets

Variants of these worksheets require the student to identify specific measurements on the ruler, as well as measure the length of an object. The object starts out at the zero position, but more advanced worksheets move the object to mid-points on the ruler, requiring some fraction subtraction to get the correct total measurement.

PhotoShop is amazing… I’m particularly pleased with how well these sheets came out visually, and one of the ruler images used in the worksheets is below. Let me know what you think!

Look for metric versions to come soon… Happy measuring!

  1. Thanks so much for making and sharing these worksheets. I’m using them with a special-needs boy who is struggling with the use of fractional-inch* measurements. You’ve provided so many worksheets of this type that I can drill this boy again and again until he “gets it.”
