We are covering measurement in one of my math classes. It amazes me the troubles that my 5th graders still have with using a ruler. It's as if everything (aside from a full inch) is lost and forgotten between fourth and fifth grade.
One of the paras I worked with found a great website, that is iPad compatible, self checking/correcting, and can be differentiated for different specifications of accuracy.
|Here she is. I love the ladies I work with :)|
One warning though, the on-screen ruler is very touchy, so you should make sure to pull on the screen to enlarge the picture before hand, because otherwise it might sense two movements and count the student wrong.
|That's the red x if you get something wrong...or hit more than one spot|

**This is a website so it works for non iPad classrooms too!! Thank you Holly for pointing that out!**
