Introducing Measurement: MINNEMAST Coordinated Mathematics - Science Series, Unit 5.
Edmunds, Polly T.; Schrankler, William J.
This volume is the fifth in a series of 29 coordinated MINNEMAST units in mathematics and science for kindergarten and the primary grades. Intended for use by kindergarten teachers, this unit guide provides a summary and overview of the unit, a list of materials needed, and descriptions of four groups of activities. The purposes and procedures for each activity are discussed. Examples of questions and discussion topics are given, and in several cases ditto masters, stories for reading aloud, and other instructional materials are included in the book. This unit presents activities related to measurement. Individual sections of the unit concern: (1) length, (2) area, (3) volume, and (4) time. In each section, the activities are concerned with comparison of objects (or durations), and development of ideas related to ordering. A brief list of children's books related to measurement is included. (SD)
