Metric Measurement Activity Cards, Monograph No. 4.
Bidwell, James K., Ed.
This document introduces the metric measurement system to students in the elementary grades through ready-to-use activity cards covering metric concepts of length, area, and volume. The cards provide a minimal sequence of activities aimed at helping the student become familar with each measurement concept; cards are ungraded and can be used as soon as children can read or have the card read to them. A list of needed materials, spiritmaster originals for worksheets, and brief directions for the teacher are included. Eighteen sources for commercial equipment and fifteen suggested sources for further reading are listed. (DT)
