Worksheets for Measuring the Length of Objects in Inches

An obvious use of a ruler is to measure the length of an object in inches. The worksheets on this page provide practice measuring an object placed at the start of the ruler, which is typically how we use a ruler to measure the length of something.

Initial sets of worksheets deal with measuring objects of whole inch lengths, followed by half inch, quarter inch, eighth inch and sixteen of an inch lengths.

This skill differs subtly from reading a position on a ruler because it introduces the concept of length as a quantity, and the ruler as a tool for measuring length (as opposed to a specific point on something akin to a number line, which is conceptually what worksheets in the prior sections dealt with.)

Later sets of worksheets deal with measuring objects placed at different starting positions on the ruler. As you will see, this slightly more complicated measurement problem introduces subtraction steps.
