Measuring with a Metric Ruler Practice Worksheet

This worksheet is meant to help students practice measuring with a metric ruler, both in centimeters, and millimeters. They will be asked to measure objects, as well as draw objects or various lengths.

The worksheet includes a “how-to” reminder for students on how to read a metric ruler.

I use this worksheet in conjunction with my foldable metric ruler, which is available in my store. I do this because cheap rulers, such as the ones parents usually buy, can vary greatly in their accuracy. When all students use my printed rulers, they should all get the same answers as I do, when I make my key.

No key is included, as your rulers may differ, and if using my foldable ruler, different printers can cause scaling issues, making a key useless.

I also sell a supplemental video, detailing how to read and use a metric ruler, helping students (and possibly teachers) become masters at metric measurement.
