How long is the bridge? How heavy is your backpack? How much can the cookie jar hold? How warm is it outside? To find out these answers, we use measurement. Length, weight, temperature and capacity are measured in different units with a variety of measuring tools. Kids experiment with non-standard measurement and discover the value of using standard units like those found in the U.S. Customary System and the Metric System, and how cool tools like rulers, balance scales and thermometers can help check estimates, and make measuring easy and accurate. When it comes to how long, how heavy, how much or how hot, math makes everything measure up!
