Our series of school riddles for kids continues today with five that all have ‘ruler’ as their answer.
The first five of them rhyme, with the fifth asking your kids What Am I? To use that last idea, read the first clue to your children and ask them to guess the answer.
There are a lot of items that are made from plastic, so it’s unlikely that they’ll guess that the answer is ruler. If they do indeed guess incorrectly, read them the clue on the second line and ask them to guess again.
Keep doing this until they either guess the right answer or they run out of clues.
Ruler Riddles For Kids
Contrary to my name
I am not a queen
Hold me up to things though
And their length is seen
If you need to know the length of something
And want to make sure your guess isn’t wrong
Then use this thing made of wood or plastic
And which is usually 12 inches long
Centimeters along one edge
And inches on the other side
It can be used to draw straight lines
Or measure how long or how wide
If you need to draw a circle
Use a compass to make it great
And if you need to draw a line
Use this item to make it straight
What Am I?
I’m sometimes made of plastic but I’m not a bottle
I’m sometimes made of wood but I’m not a table
I have a straight edge but I’m not a door
I have measurements on me but I’m not a swimming pool
I’m usually 12 inches long but I’m not a shoe
