Math Forum: Measurement Resources: Elementary Level Lessons
This site from Math Forum has an extensive collection of resources for K-6 grades related to measurement. Sections include lessons on length, area and volume, metric units and conversion, and non-standard units and estimation, as well as more general resources. For example, from this page you can go to the "Ask Dr. Math" section where you can find answers to questions about measurement. There are also a number of reference pages on various related topics and links to resources on other sites. A particularly good resource for the pre-k - 2 grade band is the lesson: Inch By Inch, designed to show students what an inch really looks like using a story. A second lesson, Non-Standard Measuring, gives students experience using a non-standard measuring tool, thus increasing their focus on the unit. All together these lessons make for a great resource to enrich student's understanding of measurement. Teachers may also find useful historical information about units of measurement in the reference materials.
