This lesson is designed to teach students practical reasons for measurement, the use of various tools for measurement, how and why those tools might be chosen and/or designed, and the need for uniformity and agreement on definitions of measurement. In this group activity, students select a student to measure, which tools are most appropriate, which aspects can or should be measured, and processes for measuring those aspects.
