Students master the skill more quickly when they are looking at the same image as the instructor. Instead of trying to interpret what they are seeing over someone’s shoulder, they will grasp the concept faster practicing with the cards.

Communication is more effective. Discuss how to read the micrometer and check for common mistakes, such as reading the wrong mark. 

A great activity for when budget or time constraints are keeping you in the classroom. Students can master the skill before heading into the shop and handling actual micrometers. These cards indicate their competency which is for perfect for practicing the skill, as well as assessing it.
