One of the best ways to teach kids about measurement is to get out the rulers and meter sticks and put them into their little hands. Let them measure and record everything in sight. Depending on the students’ grade level, they may use measurement tools to find customary or metric units.
Make learning to measure object fun and realistic by creating project based learning (PBL) tasks for your students that combine measurement with other complimentary skills such as fractions or area and perimeter.
I have created a little homework sheet for students to complete as they measure items around their home. Click here to get your FREE copy!
