A measurement station is designed so that various measuring tools are present although they may not all be used. There are rulers, yard/meter sticks, scales, cups, measuring spoons, protractors, etc. The purpose for having a variety of measuring tools is for the student to decide and learn about what is used for appropriate measuring whether they are measuring linear measures, capacity or weight.
A measurement station has various rectangular prisms from very small to somewhat large. Some ideas are trial size to regular size toothpaste boxes, bar soap boxes, various tissue boxes, shoe boxes, hairdrier boxes, pencil boxes, empty boxes that store pastas like spaghetti, elbows and lasagna noodles, a variety of cereal and cracker boxes. (Empty all boxes of food).
