ab: Summary: Measurement is a difficult concept for many children. Trend data
from the National Association of Educational Progress (NAEP) indicate
that student achievement with measurement is disappointing, given the
amount of instructional time it receives in K-grade 5. In an attempt to
address the problem of student achievement with measurement, the
authors describe one instructional lesson that integrates reading,
writing, and drawing to teach linear measurement to the inch and
fractional measurement. They also identify materials and procedures,
share samples of student work, and end with lessons they learned from
the experience. (Contains 4 figures.) (ERIC)
