Measure It!

“The study of measurement is important in the mathematics curriculum from prekindergarten through high school because of the practicality and pervasiveness of measurement in so many aspects of everyday life.”
- (NCTM 2000, p. 44)

Students use measurement in their daily lives. Using materials in this kit, your students in grades 3-5 will conduct measurement activities to explore length, area, and volume while they develop vocabularies for discussing these very important concepts.
