Measurement Resources

Human beings have a need to measure everything in this world, even the things the eye can’t see. From atoms to rocks to cups of water to planets and everything in between, we want a number that shows the size or amount of something. With our resources, teach your child all about standard measurements, and watch their curiosity grow about how much the world around them contains.

Measurement Basics

We measure just about anything, but the most common measurements are length, area, volume, mass and time. The examples below are from the U.S. Standard of Measurement.
  • Length tells us how long something is, and generally measured in inches, feet, yards and miles.
  • Area tells us the size of the surface, and is generally measured in square inch, square foot, square yard, and acre.
  • Volume tells us the capacity of something, and is generally measured in fluid ounces, cups, pints, quarts and gallons
  • Mass/weight tells us how heavy something is, and is generally measured in ounces, pounds and tons.
  • Temperature tells us how hot or cold something is, and is generally measured in Fahrenheit.
  • Time is generally measured in seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, months and years.
U.S. Standard of Measurement vs. Metric System
The United States uses one type of measurement called the U.S. Standard of Measurement while the most of the world uses the Metric System.
Some common Metric System measurements include grams, meters, hectares and Celsius. The Metric System also adds prefixes to measurements to make something larger or smaller. For example, a terabyte is bigger than a megabyte, while a nanometer is smaller than a centimeter.

Students are taught both U.S. Standard of Measurement and the Metric System, but most importantly, they are taught how to convert from one system to another; for example, converting kilometers to miles or gallons to liters.

Measuring things around you is a fun way to get to know the world, whether you’re measuring something small or something big. There is a scale for just about everything, and our worksheets and exercises will help your child learn all about them.
