Linear Measurement: Half-Inch
Students drag each object to the on-screen ruler to measure it to the nearest half-inch. Objects include pictures of paperclips, nails, erasers, crayons, and pencils. There is also a drag-and-drop activity for ordering fractional measurement numbers.
In this interactive whiteboard lesson, students measure items to the nearest 1/4 inch with the on-screen ruler. There's also an activity in which students place quarter-inch measurements in order from greatest to least.
For this interactive whiteboard lesson, students measure small objects to the nearest 1/8 inch using the ruler shown on the screen. This activity requires drag-and-drop and writing with the digital markers.
