The purpose of this unit is to develop basic concepts of measurement. The children will have a variety of experiences which make measurement concepts meaningful to them. This unit will provide some review of counting skills and simple addition and subtraction skills. The primary focus, however, is to build concepts of measurement in length, weight or mass, volume or capacity, and area; and extend them into a simple introduction to the metric system. Activities in each subtopic of this unit suggest ways to accomplish that. The subtopics are: comparisons, ordering, conservation, arbitrary units of measuring, and standard units of measuring.
