Updated on September 25, 2023

Hello, budding mathematicians and curious parents! At Brighterly, we believe that diving into the world of measurements can be as fascinating as exploring a treasure island. Today, let’s navigate the wondrous seas of 1st-grade measurement together, making each concept as radiant as the morning sun.

## What is Measurement?

Measurement is like a magical tool, helping us to understand the world around us. Imagine being a detective, and you need clues to solve a mystery. Similarly, in life, we often need to measure things to make sense of them. Whether you’re trying to find out if your toy box can fit in a new toy or checking if a glass has enough water for you – measurement is the key!

## Length and Height – The Long and Short of It

Step right up to the mesmerizing world of length and height! Have you ever wondered how tall a giraffe is compared to you or how long a worm is? By learning to measure length and height, you’re unlocking a superpower. Use a ruler or a measuring tape, and voila! The world becomes a playground. Challenge yourself: try measuring your favorite toys and compare their sizes!

## Weight – The Heavy and Light Tales

Hold two objects – maybe a feather and a book. Which one is heavier? Weight helps us know how heavy or light something is. Think of weight as a seesaw; on one side, you have a teddy, and on the other, a pencil. Which side will go down? The concept of weight is essential, and it’s super fun when learned through play.

## Volume – Fill It Up!

Last but certainly not least, we have volume. Imagine you have a bucket and a cup. Which one can hold more water? That’s what volume is all about! It tells us how much space something takes up. A fun activity? Try filling different containers at home with water or sand and guess which holds more. Then, verify your answers!
