This is one of several teacher's guides for the 4M Company, a set of materials for teaching metric concepts and computation. This level of the program deals with premeasurement concepts and vocabulary and introduces the basic metric units. Students compare properties of common objects directly. Students are introduced to four metric units: meter, liter, gram, and kilogram. Piagetian conservation tasks dealing with length, liquid, and mass are part of the program at this level. Included in the publication are needed materials, discussion of the activities, examples of responses for related student activities, and a minicourse on metric concepts. (RH)
