A measuring game from Topmarks for children aged 5 to 9 years of age. 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; students can then practise independently on a tablet

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.
