A careful study of NAPLAN outcomes suggests that many students fall down on the measurement questions. When we looked into the issues that might be causing this consistent failure, we saw that there are certain features of measuring length that may well not be getting the attention that they need.

Book 1 introduces measurement concepts and covers the standard measurement language such as tall, taller, tallest. The activities focus on measuring everyday classroom objects using informal units such coffee stirrers or paperclips. The dinosaurs that feature on the cover make their appearance on a slide sequence as well as on a printable .pdf file. And there is a special 3 Snakes app that supports and extends one of popular the activities in the book.

The  activities in this book support the teaching of Foundation: ACMMG006 and Year 1: ACMMG019.
