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 paddlepop sticks or paperclips. The dinosaurs that feature on the cover make their appearance on a slide sequence as well as on a printable pdf file.
