Being able to properly measure something is a skill that our children will use throughout life. Due to his love for wood working, my oldest son has learned the value of being able to accurately measure. After all, if you measure wrong you will waste a piece of wood. Ask a seamstress how important it is to measure precisely.
I was recently sent the Master Ruler by Master Innovations, Inc. as a product review. The Master Ruler is several rulers in one! I was sent a standard and metric ruler ($9.95 each) as well as their Marvels of Measures! Poster ($10.00), and a student workbook ($14.95).
Since Aaron and Abigail have mastered measuring, I let Abigail oversee her younger brother, Andrew use it. When measuring, it is very easy to get confused with all the lines on a ruler. What I like about The Master Ruler is that it takes out the guess work and builds confidence into the children. The ruler has separate layers for each fraction of measurement with each fraction having its own color. I love how it simplifies measuring.
Master Innovations, Inc. also has The Master Clock, The Master Angle, and The Master Fractions. You can learn more from their website here.
