This paper shares seven interactive stations teaching measurement concepts and skills: Measuring Weights; Comparing Volumes of Cylinders; Comparing Volumes of Various Bottles; Measuring Areas of Irregular Shapes; Measuring Perimeters of Irregular Shapes; Comparing Volumes of Prisms and Pyramids; and Comparing Volume of Cone to Sphere. These stations engage students in measuring real life objects, using different measurement units and tools, and working with embedded problems. Authors describe the objective, main mathematical concepts, and possible extension ideas for each station.
