This unit is designed to help students obtain a better sense of U.S. Customary & Metric Measurement. It begins with activities that help students gain an understanding of how systems of measurement have come about in order that students see these systems as a human construction. Hands-on activities involving linear measure, weight, and capacity follow. Students are also introduced to elapsed time and given lots of practice with this frequently difficult concept. This unit contains directions for eight one hour lessons spanning a week and one half’s time. This unit includes the following:
•Measurement Test (editable)
