Metric Measurement Worksheets Posted

As promised, a follow up to last week’s Inch Measurement Worksheets is here, and unsurprisingly it’s a set of similar measurement worksheets for centimeters and millimeters. You’ll find all the new goodies at the link below…

Metric Measurement Worksheets

Just like the inch versions, 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.

If you are just starting to teach the metric system, there is a great introduction in the Overview of the Metric System post from a few months back. This post discuss the relationship between metric distance, volume and mass units, as well as providing an introduction to the various prefix and base combinations used to produce different metric units. Re-reading this post has been a great review for the oldest daughter before certain math units as well as several science tests.

1. These are exactly what I’ve been looking for. They are excellent – clear and easy to read. Thanks for posting them.

3. I am a teacher at Trautwein Elementary School and my students are working on adding mixed fractions and I would really like it if dad’s worksheets had that!

4. Dear Dad, We are currently working on teaching our kids converting mertric units and they are having difficulty doing the conversions. Do you have any worksheets that convert millimeters to meters? grams to centigrams? Liters to kiloLiters? etc. any metric measurement back and forth would be great to help my kids.

We teach them the acronym…
“Kids Hate Doing Metric During Cold Months”
to help them remember the order of the metric system.
“K” Kilo…”H” Hecto… “D” Deka…”M” Meter…
“D” Deci… “C” Centi… “M” Milli

Thanks, Susan

5. Hi Susan –

I haven’t built a series on metric unit conversions, but that’s been on my to-do list for a while. My daughter did have a metric units test in here science class and I wrote a Overview of the Metric System post, which might be helpful.

I’ll make sure I get to some actual conversion worksheets soon…

Thanks,
