Books about Measurement
great for measurement lesson plans

Add some fun and zip to your measurement lesson plans with one of the following fun and educational children's books. A clear understanding of various different types of measurement systems is surely something that a student will benefit from for his or her whole life. And these children's books make learning this topic fun!

Funny and clever children's books can make learning measurement stick, and may help students who are struggling with this potentially confusing subject. As any teacher will attest, measurement lessons can be super fun or super boring. You certainly have to put some extra effort into it. Mixing in fun picture books helps.
