More about Measurement Activities

Kids learn more by doing rather than listening or reading and this is truer for measurement skills than anything else. You can pique your child’s interest by engaging him with measuring real objects, making measurement a part of his daily routine. Younger children, in particular, enjoy simple activities such as arranging objects by size, while older kids are able to work with more difficult concepts such as area and perimeter.

Here are a number of hands-on activities that teach your child to measure in a fun and engaging manner. Not only are they interactive and interesting, they also help your child apply the concept of measurement to real-world contexts.
