Description
Measure Up with Science explains how and why we measure. The series looks at measuring from ancient times to the present day, with ideas on how to make your own measuring instruments. Packed with dozens of hands-on projects, each book will help children experience firsthand the important ways in which measuring enriches our understanding of the world around us.From cubit ropes used by ancient Egyptians to build the pyramids to modern road-measuring equipment, the concept of distance is critical to everyday life. This book shows how to draw in perspective and introduces the Imperial (English) and metric measuring systems.
