    Math literature

    An awesome book to use with linear measurement is "How Big is a Foot" by Rolf Muller...a story of how the king wants to have a bed built for the queen....and how the poor apprentice runs into trouble building a bed measured with apprentice sized feet vs. king sized feet. It emphasizes the need for standard units of measurement.

    "Clocks and More Clocks" (I don't remember the author offhand) is a great book if you're including time in your measurement unit. There are also some great scholastic books in a Hello Math Reader series (depending on the age of your class). I have "Just a Minute" by Teddy Slater but there are also many more of these easy reads which emphasize math concepts.

    Hope this helped!
