This PPT presentation introduces the different ways we measure things. It gives kid-friendly definitions and examples with pictures of weight scales, thermometers, standard and non-standard measurements for width and height, and measurements of time with clocks and calendars. Teachers can explain and ask students if they know what each measurement instrument is used for and what unit we would measure with (lbs, degrees, inches, cubes, pencils, etc.)
The end of the presentation gives a review with a "quiz" of which instrument we would use for each scenario. Each slide will show a picture of something to be measured. The students will have to tell the teacher which instrument they would use, how they would measure, and what unit they would measure.
