It emphasizes: activities that teach basic measurement skills; techniques for understanding small and large numbers; learning devices that improve measurement understanding; strengthening measurement vocabulary through games/puzzles; cross curriculum, short-term measurement projects; student research in measurement; teaching time-savers; board games for concept reinforcement; creative people in measurement exploration; measurement history; classroom interaction with everyday measures; practical approaches for problem solving/critical thinking; challenging multi-level math/measurement drills; and a variety of out-of-classroom experiences. There are 90 activities and an answer key for some of the activities. (YP)
