Key to Measurements Workbooks

Key to Measurement workbooks include a variety of hands-on experiences related to the customary units of measurement. Group projects are included in addition to numerous individual activities. In Book 1, students learn how a linear measurement system is developed and then do activities related to measuring length. Book 2 focuses on length, perimeter, and area measures. In Book 3, the concept of area is further developed, and students are introduced to volume. Book 4 covers a variety of topics. Students experiment with weighing objects and measuring capacity, and they also learn about temperature and time.
