This resource provides a printable metric card, which has unit blanks to be completed. Each card also contains an 8 cm ruler which may be used as a measurement reference. This resource is to be printed on Tabloid/Ledger paper of size 279.4 mm x 431.8 mm (11 in x 17 in), which will provide seven cards to be cut out and distributed. This resource is an interactive method to engage students in metric units and measures. Caution: The ruler edge will not be accurate if other paper sizes are used.
Use caution when handling paper edges and scissors to prevent injury.
Explain the metric units of measure on each card. Providing students with an interactive resource to learn metric measures should aid metric learning.
