Everyday we measure things. This video not only discusses how we measure things in our everyday lives, but also describes how observations are made by measuring things in science. Specific ways of measuring length, mass, volume, and temperature are demonstrated using tools common to the classroom. Emphasis is placed on the process and skills of measurement. The use of the metric system in conducting scientific measurements is emphasized. Other terminology includes: unit of measurement, meter stick, metric ruler, balance, graduated cylinder, and thermometer.
"Measuring [including a teacher’s guide, video/DVD, video script, pre/post student test, video review, vocabulary sheet, and writing and measuring activity sheets] is a terrific purchase for both an experienced teacher measurer or for a first time teacher adventurer. I highly recommend this guide for third graders, but it could be easily used in grades 3 to 5, especially for fifth-grade review."- NSTA Recommends February 2006
