Measurement Mania presents basic rules of measurement in a stimulating format. Children can learn to estimate the height of a tree by measuring its shadow and to determine distances by counting revolutions of a bicycle's wheels. With fun-filled activities, Long illustrates techniques of estimation and conversion.
