A fun way to introduce kids to measurement, addition, subtraction, and pre-algebra is with this set of printable animal-themed "rulers" each measuring a specific length in inches. Just laminate and cut them out and you can measure anything!
There are 6 Animal Rulers. The bee is 1 inch, the turtle is 2 inches, the rabbit is 3 inches, the horse is 4 inches, the bear is 5 inches and the elephant is 6 inches.
Give your kids or students a small item to measure, such as a pencil, marker, spoon, bottle, book, shoe, toy, etc. and let them figure out which animal matches the length of that object. If the object is bigger than the biggest animal (6 inches), let them use 2 or 3 animals to measure and then add them up to figure out the length.
For older children (kindergarten, 1st grade and up), there are 8 equation mats with a total of 24 equations ranging from easy to advanced. A rabbit plus a turtle equals what animal? An elephant minus a horse equals what animal? This is a unique and interesting way to teach basic math and measuring skills and is sure to keep your kids interested and make learning fun!
