School supplies and tools make it easier for children to learn basic concepts. Learning Resources school rulers are excellent for visual and traditional learners as they offer a way to learn by doing. They enable students to make accurate measurements on worksheets and of various items around the classroom. Staples® carries a selection of rulers and other measuring tools that are the perfect addition to any school supplies list. 

Using Learning Resources School Rulers for All Types of Measuring Needs
From traditional flat and architect rulers to ones with hinges in the center, rulers take many forms to suit a variety of needs. Use the straight edge for crafts and drawing pictures or getting the exact measurement of an item before making a cut. Grid-like layouts on some rulers make it easy to line up designs for figuring out measurements of shapes in math.

Use rulers to fill up festive season stockings or to give as prizes during classroom competitions. Choose bulk packages so you've always got a supply to gift students on birthdays and at other special events.

Choosing the Correct Learning Resources School Ruler for Classroom Instruction
Rulers and tape measures come in a variety of designs for use as teaching aids in classrooms and in home study. Inchworm™ rulers are ideal for use in classrooms. Each segment has a different color to help distinguish measurements. The transparent design makes it easy to see what you are measuring, and the plastic construction is durable enough for repeated use.

Use angle rulers to measure the length as well as the angle of geometric shapes. Connect different legs of segmented rulers together to teach students about calculating the areas and center points of designs. Select multipacks for use in classroom instruction to ensure each child has the tools needed for the lesson.

What's the Difference Between a Learning Resources School Ruler and a Meter Stick?
School rulers in the U.S. are marked in inches and measure up to 18 inches. A meter stick uses the metric system of measurement and is 1 meter or 39.5 inches long. It is slightly longer than a yard stick.

What Do the Lines on a Learning Resources School Ruler Mean?
Metric rulers have large marks for centimeters and shorter lines to show millimeters. English rulers have large marks to indicate inches. Smaller marks demarcate halves, quarters, eighths, and sixteenths of an inch.

What Are the Most Common Materials for Learning Resources School Rulers?
Rulers are usually made of metal, wood, or plastic. Plastic is the most useful for school children because it's transparent. This helps a child make sure everything is aligned properly before calculating the measurement. Plastic is also shatter-resistant if it's dropped, and the material tends to have plenty of give and bends without breaking when placed under a limited amount of pressure. Wooden rulers also work well for children because they're durable and stand up to daily use, although the edges can wear down easily. Steel rulers are the strongest, but they can be expensive. These models are ideal for use in technical drawing classes because their thin material ensures their markings are closer to the drawing paper.
