boy at school

In Topic B, Lesson 4, students begin using centimeter rulers, meter sticks, and meter tapes to measure various objects. Through the practice of measuring various items and learning mental benchmarks for measurement, students organically develop estimation skills in Lesson 5. They also develop their skills for selecting an appropriate measuring tool by referencing prior knowledge of objects they have already measured, as well as by using mental benchmarks.
