Basic Measurement

In our Basic Measurement lesson plan, students learn the basics of measuring length, capacity, and weight. Students learn the proper unit for each and how to determine the best form of measurement for various objects or purposes.

Our Basic Measurement lesson plan defines and distinguishes between length, capacity, and weight. Students engage in interactive activities to help them understand the terms related to each of the units of measurement and develops critical thinking when distinguishing the applicable unit of measurement. During this lesson, students are asked to match words and images to the correct type of measurement (capacity, length, or weight). Students are also asked to determine the best form of measurement for different objects.

At the end of the lesson, students will be able to define and distinguish between length, capacity, and weight and recognize the terms related to each of the units of measurement.

    Great tool for learning

    I'm a retired teacher helping homeschool grandkids. This lesson was well-developed and included some hands-on experiential activity. It worked quite well with our kindergartener.

    Basic Measurement

    I am a grandparent living in another state and trying to help out remotely during Covid-19 by providing some education to grandchildren. The Basic Measurement product is very good but at this time I am still trying to implement the teaching format.
