Length and Capacity, Second Edition

Tap your students’ natural desire to know how big? how far? how much? with this introduction to measurement. Students explore linear measures of length, width, and height by ordering sets of sticks, rectangles, and blocks according to relative size. Meter sticks and metric rulers are used to measure classroom distances. Students compare and measure the capacities of different-shaped containers in liters and milliliters. Not only do they find out how far and how much, they learn the importance of uniform standard units of measure. In addition to proficiency with measuring tools and seriation, they gain the invaluable skill of estimation. (12 Activities)
