    Abstract

    What young children learn about length, area, and volume can form a strong foundation for much of their later mathematics learning. We organized a research-based program, Count Me into Measurement, designed to teach measurement of these spatial attributes in the first three years of formal schooling. The program was recently implemented in a sample of New South Wales (NSW) elementary schools. For the sake of brevity, we shall refer to length, area, and volume as spatial attributes and their measurement as spatial measurement.
