This lesson includes 5 printable learning activities
Measuring with Nonstandard Units Song
The metric system is important, but measuring objects with nonstandard units is important to help kids understand the underlying principles of measurement; they'd simply read units on a ruler and write down the answer without any additional big picture knowledge. In this fun song, children see how objects can be measured using different objects.
Reordering Objects

Kids compare objects by their length and height and move them around to place them in the correct order. This game lets kids play around with classic cars like a 50s convertible and a 60s "Bug," and actual bugs like a sassy centipede and a gracious grasshopper. Click and drag the objects into place according to the words on the screen.
