    I am fortune to have the school courtyard attached to my classroom and it is square.

    1. School Courtyard

    2. Measure the surface area of walls and ground. I have also measured the volume/capacity (It is fun to have students try to figure out how many starburst they would need to cover the walls and ground or fill the courtyard)

    3. Usually meters to measure need lengths then used those measurements to calculate approximate surface area and volume. Some students will choose to measure in feet and inches.

    4. Students need to be able to relate how many centimetres are in a meter to achieve a greater accuracy in their measurement.
