We want to help create motivated and engaged young readers. This blog is about children's and YA literature (especially New Zealand), literacy research, and ways to get, and keep, kids reading.
Here's a great maths series sepecifically designed around the concept of measurement and suitable for primary school students. In this book distance, area and volume are covered separately, and when discussed units are given in metric followed by imperial units in brackets. Both the metric and imperial systems are covered for all three types of measurement, and handy conversion tables given.
The illustrations and tables are well laid out and clearly labelled. There are five titles in the ‘Measure it!’ series. The other four are; ‘Mass and Weight’, ‘Speed and Acceleration’, ‘Temperature’, and ‘Time’.
