The study of measurement dates back to ancient civilizations such as Rome, Greece and Babylonia. Research the beginnings of three general terms that are related to standard units of capacity, weight or length. For example if you choose to research three units of length, you could research how the terms, “foot,” “inch”, and “yard” originated. Then show when and how each term began being used as a unit of measurement. Write down the three terms you’ve researched and a brief explanation of how they originated as units of measurement.
