Students will engage in various measurement activities in Cyberchase. They will explore concepts of measuring weight in Poddleville Identification, capacity in Pour the Score, volume in Wig Gels, and with this activity length. Students will use string to measure and compare lengths and circumferences of parts of their body. This will give children concrete experience with non-standard measurement and will give a comprehensive measurement experience. Aligned with Core Standards: K.MD.1 , K.MD.2 , 1.MD.1 , 1.MD.2
