This resource features more than 40 classroom-tested activities for exploring measurement. Students will explore length using rulers and yardsticks; mass and volume using scales and liters; and area and perimeter using color tiles and graph paper.
In keeping with the current math standards, students are asked to:
Estimate and compare lengths in standard units
Estimate and measure the mass and volume of classroom objects
Select and use appropriate measurement tools
Solve word problems involving length, distance, mass and volume
Tell and write time to nearest minute using a.m. and p.m.
Generate measurement data and display in graphs and line plots
Calculate area and perimeter, relating area to addition and multiplication
These can be used as small-group work or whole-class activities.
