On these worksheets, students are given a measurement and are required to show the correct point on the ruler.
Once students are comfortable reading a measurement from a ruler, the next step is to be able to accurately mark a specific measurement. The inch ruler worksheets on this page start with problems where a student is given a measurement in whole inches and they are asked to draw an arrow indicating that measurement on the ruler.
Subsequent worksheets introduce measurements in half inch measurements, quarter inch measurements, eighth of an inch measurements and sixteenth of an inch measurements. The last several worksheets on this page require students to mark measurements in any of these fractions of an inch.
These worksheets will prepare students for the task of measuring the length of objects, which is the topic of the measuring worksheets on the following pages.
