Measuring standards. The Museums Accreditation Scheme which exists throughout the UK is designed to define good practice according to a minimum level of agreed standards, such as how the museum is run, how it manages its collections, and the experience of those using or accessing the museum.

A Measuring Guide (Math Is Categorical) by Brian Cleary is a fantastic book to introduce measurement to your little learners. Focusing on length, this text doesn’t have a traditional story line – but what it does have is rhyming text, colorful characters, and clever examples.

This book draws attention to the development of theory and its practical applications in museum situations such as aquariums, zoos, botanical gardens and historical re-enactment sites, among others.

There is also the issue of availability, with most schools only using one or two of these tools, and primarily in early elementary school.

There are many lenses through which we can measure the value of a museum experience. There is the satisfaction factor: Did visitors have a good time.

We've gathered up a great collection of books, activities, apps, and websites for learning all about math and measuring. Try pairing fiction with nonfiction books and exploring different genres (like poetry and biographies) and formats (like graphic novels and audio books).

You'll be creating your own "text sets" — collections of texts. Teaching with picture books makes learning fun. There are many great picture books that help children learn about number identification and counting.

The following books are some of the best books to teach counting and help students learn to identify numbers. Most of the books focus on counting to ten with the exception of two that mention. Measuring with Books, Blocks, and Even Penguins.
