    To begin our measurment unit each group is given a straw (each is of different length) to measure their desks. Then I have each reporter report the length and width of their desk. By the time I am done the results are very different and they may have realized that the straws were of different lengths. This gets us to the conversation of needing a standard unit of measurement. Then we create meter tapes and measure things around the room, as well as ourselves. This is just a start, but it is inexpensive, I hope it helps!
