Measurement and Geometry Teaching Resources

Measurement and Geometry are investigated together. Children investigate features and properties of two-dimensional shapes and three-dimensional objects, then apply of their understanding of these features and properties to measure their length, area, volume and capacity and mass. Time is investigated as a separate concept.
