4th graders love having fun with rulers, and this 4th grade math activity will let them do just that. Have a measuring scavenger hunt with students around the playground or around the school. In groups, have them set out with rulers or tape measures to find objects with several estimated measurements, such as the following:
· 4 inches, rounded to the nearest inch
· 3 feet, rounded to the nearest foot
· 7.5 feet, rounded to the nearest tenth of a foot
· 2 yards, rounded to the nearest yard
As the groups come back, compare their findings. See whether any of them came up with the same objects.
These 4th grade math activities are a great way to help students learn math in a hands-on way. Try them today to bring your math class to life!
