Measurement skills provide children with a powerful link between the abstract world of numbers and the concrete world of physical objects. Before young children learn to measure, they can only describe objects or quantities with relatively vague, uninformative terms such as “big” or “many.” As they learn to measure, children acquire the skills to describe quantities in more precise and more useful terms. They can now talk about the size of quantities as the number of units measured.
