Maths starter game (All colours)

Measuring in Centimetres


This game provides a useful introduction for children learning to use a ruler. It works well on an interactive whiteboard so that teachers can demonstrate the positioning of objects at the beginning of the scale rather than the end of the ruler.


There are two levels; one with whole numbers of centimetres and the second with mixed examples involving whole numbers and halves. The game also provides a good introduction to reading scales.
