Gr 1-3-This series includes historical information and facts about the use of different kinds of measurement; it is not a how-to set. On each spread, short paragraphs face an illustration or photo. The material begins with a history of the measurement. For example, Length explains that "Before people had standard tools for measuring, they used body parts." The colorful illustrations are pleasant, but do not provide additional information. The short glossaries contain four to six words with pronunciation guides. The volumes stress the importance of standards in measurement and are thorough in covering different systems (metric and U.S. customary systems, Fahrenheit and Celsius, etc.) from around the world. Although these titles are not particularly memorable, they could facilitate good segues into meaningful classroom activities.α(c) Copyright 2011.
