# Making Sense of Measurement - Presentation

Description

This presentation is a great resource for teachers to use when introducing and revisiting measurement. The presentation aims to help students familiarize themselves with common metric units used for measuring everyday items. It then explores how having personal referents and an understanding of common measurements helps us to understand the measurements of unfamiliar objects.

Suitable for
• Relief Teachers
• Parents
