How about – “The History of Measurements – as suggested by Ms. Martin’s class at Learning Haven”

The short story:

Ms. Martin is volunteer with an after school educationional program for a very special group of kids. She came across our website Presco AG while discussing the significance of math and technology to our lives, and in particular, the significance of different discoveries and how they have changed the world!

Two kids found this great page at home that they brought in for Ms. Martin to see about where “measurement” came from!

It was the link:  history of measurements.

Ms. Martin suggested that they share this with you because it was so relevant to what they were learning and because she want to impress upon them that by reaching out and simply asking others, things can be accomplished  that the girls might not otherwise think can.
