Mathematics for Young Minds: Measurement Activities



About this product

Mathematics for Young Minds Measurement is an instruction activity book filled with 60 developmentally sequenced Year F to Year 1 measurement activities.

It also includes blackline masters and informal assessment guidelines.

Product Details

This book focuses the mathematical background and research base of measurement. The goal is to help young learners develop an understanding of the following four attributes of measurement:

  • Length
  • Area
  • Capacity (or volume)
  • Weight (or mass)

Although children can easily describe the color of a cup, methods to quantify its measurement attributes are not as easy.

The topics of volume and capacity are grouped together because these ideas are closely related at the early stages of learning. Activities for these attributes are similar. This also applies to weight and mass.
