Hands On Kits to Teach Measurement

length1weightcapacityWe’ve added three excellent hands on learning kits from the well respected Lakeshore Company.  All teach concepts related to measurement:  length, perimeter, area, and volume; weight; and capacity.  They are in the Teaching Aid room at CURR TA 372.7 L21Lc, CURR TA 372.7 L21e, CURR TA 372.7 L21w
From the manufacturer: Students gain a concrete understanding of measurement concepts—with hands-on activities that encourage them to estimate, compare, make conversions and more! Each ready-to-use center has 10 different, self-directing activity cards that are both write & wipe and reproducible, plus all the hands-on tools to complete each activity—from comparing weights with balance and platform scales to measuring volume with 1″ cubes! You also get a freestanding conversion chart…plus a teacher’s guide with reproducibles and differentiated instruction strategies.

Targets standards in these areas:
• Identifying units of measure
• Using measuring tools
• Comparing and estimating
• Problem solving
• Standard and metric conversions
