Free Measurement Dominoes

We have been talking quite a bit about metric units for measuring length and how you convert from mm to m, cm to m or mm to cm. We did lots of hands on examples where the kids walked around the house and measured items in cm and then mm but I still wanted to find a way to practice moving between cm, mm and m.  Both my kids love using Maths dominoes so I had a quick look to see if  I could find something useful on the internet.  But after a quick search I could not find what I wanted and I did not feel like spending ages searching so instead I decided I would try to create some of our own dominoes.

Nothing fancy but just a way for the kids to practice and hopefully to cement when they need to divide/ multiple by 10, 100 or 1000.

I kept ours straight forward with just black font for everything.  And I tried to mix in a combination of easier examples with some harder ones.

However 2 other home educating moms said it would be useful to have a colour version which the younger kids could use if they wanted.  The idea being that the colours would help the kids – so 600 mm and 60 cm would be 1 colour and then 90 mm and 9cm would be in a different colour.  So I also converted my exisiting dominoes into a colour version as well.

I still want to create a complete set where the I mix converting between km, m, cm, and mm in one set – hopefully I will get that done soon.
