Measurement HD could be used during an introduction to basic measurement concepts, or for independent practice. Ideally, you would first use real objects in the classroom, then introduce this app to help kids get practice with the concepts.Continue reading Show less
Measurement HD introduces measurement concepts to young learners. The app includes five mini-games, each covering a specific topic related to measurement: "Crazy Clock" (time), "Scale Tale" (weight), "Fill Me Up" (volume), "Long & Short" (length), and "Action Month" (names of months). The weight, length, and volume games involve comparisons of two different objects, so kids have to choose which object is heavier, lighter, longer, etc.
Kids can learn about time, weight, length, and volume with Measurement HD. Touch-and-drag features of the games allow kids to set an analog clock to a given hour; compare weights, lengths, and volumes of different objects; and spell out the months of the year. Kid-friendly visual and audio instructions and clues help guide kids. The games are beginner-level and do not have options to increase the difficulty. More constructive feedback and more depth to the activities would give Measurement HD a boost, since scores and progress tracking aren't available,

Measurement And Data
Tell and write time in hours and half-hours using analog and digital clocks.
Directly compare two objects with a measurable attribute in common, to see which object has “more of”/“less of” the attribute, and describe the difference. For example, directly compare the heights of two children and describe one child as taller/shorter.
