In this game, students are given an object such as a diving board or earthwork and are asked to select the appropriate unit for the measurement of the object, including yards, meters, centimeters, inches, and feet. Students select the correct answer from two possibilities. Their answers and the time taken are recorded. This is an excellent resource to help students understand the difference in units of measurement as well as beginning estimation skills.
