Measure Angles to the Nearest Degree With Protractors
Measuring angle openings is easy with a protractor, but what if the opening isn't a multiple of ten? Real world examples showcase how protractors can be read precisely. A quick review of the process of estimation starts the lesson. Then, the step-by-step process is described clearly and concisely as the narrator works through two real-world problems in which estimation and prediction are key.

Measuring Instruments for Physics-VERNIER RULER
A gentle voice and jazz music make this video easy on the senses. It provides a close-up view of a Vernier Ruler as the narrator explains how it works and how to use one to measure the diameter of a pen. Since this ruler is used for measuring smaller lengths, gathering your class close enough to you to demonstrate might not allow everyone to see what you are doing.

Arctic Animals: How Do They Measure Up?
Young scientists grab their measuring tapes, rulers, and yard sticks as they see how big Arctic animals really are. To conceptualize the trait of height or length, each small group will measure out the entire length of an arctic animal. They line animal pictures up to show how they compare from smallest to largest.

How Big is Big?
In a math or life science class, "mini-me" models are created with cardstock to reflect a 1:10 scale of students' bodies. Learners measure each others' heights with meter sticks, and then reduce the size by 10. After this exercise, they work in groups to find the measurements of different animals and plants, and then make scale models of them.
