Yards or inches? Understanding measurements has a lot to do with units, so give scholars some scenarios and have them choose the appropriate unit. There are six labeled images here requiring weight, distance, length, and capacity. They choose from seven units of measurement for each: yard, gallon, mile, ounce, foot, pound, and inch. As you review this, discuss the absurdity of measuring with the wrong units (calculating a trans-Atlantic flight in inches, for example). Bring in some real items and challenge pupils to determine the best units to measure them.
