Measurement Unit

· · · · · · · ·

I have been working for the past few months on getting my beloved Measurement Unit together and posted on Teachers Pay Teachers, and tonight I FINALLY finished it!

I began to create this unit several years ago and use it every year with, of course, new additions. I love teaching measurement because it is so hands-on and fun! My kids always love this unit.
